Having removed the original motion for debate, those voting Aye accepted the following Parliamentary motion:

This House welcomes the UK's climate change programme which has already put the UK on course to exceed its Kyoto target of a 12.5% in 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions by 2008-12 and make further progress towards the Government's ambitious target to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent. by 2010; recognises the vital contribution of the Climate Change Levy, which has already saved 28 million tonnes of carbon emissions and by 2010 will be reducing carbon emissions by over seven million tonnes per year; congratulates the Government on exceeding its recycling target supported by the Landfill Tax and Landfill Allowance Trading Scheme and contributing to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions; commends introduction in the UK of the world's first international emissions trading scheme capping emissions from power stations and energy-intensive industries; further welcomes the Government's proposals for the second phase of the scheme in the UK; further welcomes the Government's energy review, which proposes measures to save up to a further 25 million tonnes of carbon emissions per year by 2020 and to put the UK economy on a path to a 60% cut in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050; congratulates the Government on its commitment to delivering a strong economy based on high and stable levels of growth and employment as well as high standards of environmental care; and calls upon the Government to continue to put environmental protection, locally, nationally and globally at the heart of its policies."
