Ten Point Plan doesn't undo the damage Conservatives have caused UK Green progress

November 19, 2020 8:30 AM

Yesterday the Government announced their Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution.

Sadly, it fails to undo the damage the Conservatives have done to the UK's progress on climate change over the past five years.

The UK needs a long term plan backed by meaningful funding.

The Conservative plan not only pledges to continue selling fossil fuel powered hybrid cars past 2030 but it also extends the Green Homes Grant by just one year. Hardly helpful to the impending crisis.

To tackle the climate emergency and kickstart a green recovery from Covid-19, the UK needs a long term plan backed by meaningful funding.

Liberal Democrats are calling for Β£150 billion in funding for a Green Lib Dems, with investment across every sector of the UK economy to fuel sustainable growth.

This includes a new Department of Climate Change to coordinate this plan and a significant devolution of powers across the UK, not more piecemeal pledges.
