Exciting news! Clean Air Act
I've exciting news. I'm sitting reading a draft of the new Clean Air Act which I intend to put to the Lords this year, but I need your financial help to put the green movement onto the front foot and to make clean air a reality. Please donate £5 today.
The draft of this new Act has been commissioned by the Clean Air in London Campaign. It builds on the excellent work by Geraint Davis MP and lays the legal foundations for a whole set of practical policies for reducing air pollution. It also provides the basis for an Environmental Enforcement Agency with teeth, which is going to be a key discussion in 2018.
The EU Withdrawal Bill comes to the Lords in 2018 and the government have no natural majority in the second chamber. I will be urging the Lords to delete all the Henry 8th powers of delegated decision making and to make a stand against this executive power grab. I will also be following up on all the work done by Caroline Lucas MP in the Commons by putting forward the amendments to secure the welfare of animals and protect our precious natural spaces.
