PM attacks Labour energy policy
Reacting to David Cameron’s attack today on Labour leader Ed Miliband’s support for a power sector decarbonisation target in the House of Commons today, Friends of the Earth’s Head of Campaigns Andrew Pendleton said:
“Ending the nation’s dependency on increasingly expensive fossil fuels is essential if we want to build an affordable energy system.
“The Prime Minister’s own advisors could not have been clearer – investing in clean energy will save cash-strapped households tens of billions of pounds over the coming decades compared to the Government’s reckless dash for gas.
“A power sector decarbonisation target will provide investors with a crystal clear steer on where to put their money, and help Britain tackle climate change – which is why peers are expected to vote in favour of one in the next few weeks.”
