Climate Change — 22 Nov 2005 at 21:48

Nick Herbert MP, Arundel and South Downs voted in the minority (Aye).

Those voting No were against the original words of the motion for debate:

This House endorses the principle of a cross-party consensus on carbon reduction.

so they were changed to:

This House welcomes the leadership shown by the UK Government internationally on climate change, and the important progress made at the July Summit and at the recent meeting of the Dialogue on Climate Energy, Clean Energy and Sustainable Development; further welcomes the recent announcement of the Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation and looks forward to the publication of the climate change programme review; recognises the importance of building greater understanding and support among all sectors of society for action on climate change; and further welcomes new ideas and contributions from all quarters that help to reduce carbon emissions.
