KRAMER CALLS FOR BILL WITH TEETH TO TACKLE CLIMATE CHANGE

October 16, 2006 4:11 PM

Local MP Susan Kramer met with a Queen look-a-like outside the House of Commons this week to highlight the need for a new climate change law.

She was one of 397 MPs who are backing The Big Ask, Friends of the Earth's climate campaign which is calling for the introduction of a law that would commit the Government to cutting the UK's carbon dioxide emissions by at least three per cent year on year.

Susan Kramer said:

" We have been promised a Bill in the Queen's Speech on November 15th but it must be a law that bites.

"The last thing we need is a toothless law and endless talk of targets. If targets were the test of a good government then this would be a well run country.

"As it is we are overloaded with targets in every area of public life and what we need are clear commitments and the political will to save the planet."
