A great hustings tonight on the environment and human rights with Amnesty International and Transition Buxton. Great to be able to talk about Labour’s plans for a practical transition to zero emissions whilst protecting people’s homes, transport and livelihoods.

Excellent policies in Labour’s manifesto for:

  • 7,000 new offshore wind turbines and 2,000 onshore
  • A scrappage scheme for polluting vehicles
  • Zero carbon standard for new homes
  • Upgrade most of our 27m homes to the highest energy efficiency
  • Rail nationalisation and huge investment in our network and supporting buses and cycle routes
  • Plant a billion new trees by 2030
  • Change planning rules to prevent building on flood risk areas
  • £4.5 billion for a new waste and recycling infrastructure
  • All part of a £250 billion Green Transformation Fund

 

I’m very pleased that so many Green Party members and supporters have said they will vote for me as it’s so important to prevent the Conservatives winning and delaying climate action by another 5 years.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
