Planning Bill — Policy must mitigate and adapt to Climate Change — rejected — 6 Nov 2008 at 16:44
The majority of the Lords voted against requiring the National Policy Statement made by the Minister to "contribute to the mitigation of and to the mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change and to the achievement of sustainable development"
A similar vote was also lost in the House of Commons earlier in the year. This establishes the case that national planning policy need not take account of mitigation or adaptation to the challenge of climate change.
