City MP pledges support for climate change target

Have your say

AN MP has backed calls for the government to end the UK’s contribution to climate change. 

Stephen Morgan, MP for Portsmouth South, said he has joined calls for the prime minister to do more to tackle climate change.

The aim is to bring the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, placing the UK at the front of the race for investment in clean industries, creating jobs and inspiring the next generation. 

Attending an event this week which marked 10 years since the Climate Change Act was passed, Mr Morgan said: ‘Without ambitious action climate change will remain one of the greatest threats to our environment.

‘As one of the most densely populated cities in the UK, Portsmouth will benefit greatly from ministers taking climate change seriously.

‘It’s really important that we work to improve to make our city cleaner, more energy efficient and protect our natural environment.

‘We need to join the rest of the UK in shouldering our responsibility and leading the fight against climate change,’ he added.
