Portsmouth South MP, Stephen Morgan declared his support for the stance shown by Shadow Environment Secretary, Sue Hayman.

The announcement follows a wave of similar council motions, including Portsmouth, and youth climate school strikes nationwide.

Mr Morgan said: ‘I am really proud that a Labour-led motion at Full Council last week declared a climate emergency in Portsmouth. I’m now proud that my party has followed suit nationally in the House of Commons this week. We need radical action from the government.’
