Climate Change Bill — Minister to prepare policy — rejected — 31 Mar 2008 at 17:09

A small majority of Lords voted against directing to Secretary of State:[1]

  • To prepare such proposals and policies (including the setting of five year budgets) as he reasonably considers will
  • ensure that the net UK carbon account for the year 2050 is at least 60% lower than the 1990 baseline, and
  • enable the carbon budgets that have been set under this Act to be met.

Without this amendment, the Secretary of State has only a

  • duty to ensure that the net UK carbon account for the year 2050 is at least 60% lower than the 1990 baseline[2]

but does not need to prepare proposals, policies, or set five year budgets.
