INDEPENDENT ADVICE ON CLIMATE CHANGE

That this House recalls its decision in 2008 in favour of establishing a Climate Change Act and to accept the views expressed by leaders of all the main political parties in the UK to establish an independent body to set and enforce targets for reducing carbon emissions to meet the 80 per cent. reduction criteria by the year 2050; notes that in December 2010 the Committee on Climate Change advised the Government in detail on the speed necessary to cut carbon emissions over the coming decades, since when no response has been received on this matter; and calls on the Prime Minister to live up to his own promise to show our intention to get to grips with this problem by accepting such sound advice on this worrying matter.
