Matt Rodda MP speaking in Parliament

Climate change is real – it is happening – and it is an emergency. It was important to represent Reading in yesterday’s parliamentary debate on the climate emergency. Urgent action is needed by government, not just warm words. We can reverse climate change, but it requires us to work together, in our communities, and in government to combat it 🌍
Labour’s green transformation strategy will:
– Create 400,000 new green jobs in solar, tidal and wind energy 🌞
– Ban fracking in the UK 🚫
– Ensure that 60% of the UK’s energy comes from low-carbon or renewable sources within twelve years of coming to power ⚡
– Tighten regulation of privately rented homes, blocking poorly insulated homes from being rented out 🏘
– Introduce a new Clean Air Act to deal with the Conservative legacy of illegal air quality 🚴‍♀️
– Introduce new legal minimum standards to ensure properties are fit for human habitation and empower tenants to take action if their rented homes are sub-standard 🏡
– Encourage greater use of public transport by introducing free bus travel for under 25s where local authorities regulate or take ownership of their local bus services, paid for using money ring-fenced from Vehicle Excise Duty 🚌
