The Conservative Party have failed to tackle the climate crisis. Excluding onshore wind and solar power from markets for renewables, cutting grants for electric vehicles and failing to support clean engines for buses and heavy vehicles, even where cities like Greater Manchester are introducing a Clean Air Zone have left us off target for our carbon emissions and failing to tackle illegal levels of air pollution. I’m proud of Labour’s Green Transformation Plan of practical but radical policies so we can cut our emissions much faster and tackle air pollution that affects many of our towns in High Peak.

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.”
