Opposition Day — Global Leadership on Tackling the Causes of Poverty Inequality and Climate Change — 28 Jan 2015 at 18:49
The majority of MPs voted against the Government showing global leadership on tackling the causes of poverty inequality and climate change.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- recognises that 2015 is an historic year for development as the countries of the world come together to negotiate the binding climate change agreement at the 2015 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals;
- believes it is unacceptable that more than one billion people still live in extreme poverty on less than $1.25 a day;
- notes that the effects of climate change will be most severe in some of the world’s poorest countries;
- further recognises that the UK has a leading role to play in these negotiations;
- regrets that the Government failed to bring forward legislation to enshrine in law the commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of Gross National Income on international aid as set out in the Coalition Agreement;
- further regrets that this Government has failed to support standalone Sustainable Development Goals on health and climate change; and
- calls on the Government to show global leadership on tackling the causes of poverty inequality and climate change.
