Please ask your MP to support this amendment to the Energy Bill
Extract from a letter by Geraint Davies, Labour MP for Swansea West, received today:
“… if the UK is going to meet the ambitious and necessary target by the previous government in the 2008 Climate Change Act …, it will be necessary to substantially decarbonise electricity generation.
I am disappointed that despite the recommendations of the CCC [Climate Change Commission] and the concerted support from business, trade unions, academics and other organisations that the Government have not included this commitment in their Energy Bill …
An amendment has now been tabled to the Energy Bill that would require the Government to introduce a decarbonisation target in the Energy Bill for the power sector by 1 April 2014 and I will be supporting it …”
If you believe that this government should be held to the promise to be the “greenest government ever”, please write to your MP and ask them to support this amendment.
