In House of Commons, Greg Hands refuses to say that his net zero strategy meets the 6th carbon budget for 2035. Once again there is a chasm between the grand promises and the appalling weakness in delivery.
7/ That is the choice facing this country on the #netzero transition:   Tories - climate delay and households footing the bill.   Labour - investing for a transition that is fair, will keep bills down, and takes action equal to the scale of the emergency we face.
6/ In contrast, Labour has a plan to invest £6 billion a year between now and 2030 for low carbon heating and retrofit. Led by local authorities, we'll give every home that needs it an upgrade, bring bills down by hundreds of pounds, improve energy security, and create good jobs
5/A proper warm homes plan would lower bills, reduce emissions, and create jobs. But this Government is ducking the crucial decisions and making households pay the costs. By failing to invest, millions of households are being left out in the cold.
4/ It's even worse on home insulation. 19 million households are below EPC C. What is being proposed is not the 10-year retrofit plan we desperately needed and will only scratch the surface of the problem. There isn't even a replacement for their botched Green Homes Grant...
3/ Heat pump grants for 30,000 households a year cover only 1 in 250 households currently on the gas grid. Given that the Government's target is 600k heat pumps a year by 2028, this is way short of where they need to be.
2/ This strategy was meant to be the Government's big plan after a decade of inaction on energy efficiency. Emissions from buildings are now higher than 2015. A real plan needs investment at scale to help households make the transition- but this announcement doesn’t deliver.
1/The heat and buildings strategy has been delayed for months. For a country facing an energy price crisis, rising bills, and climate emergency, it wasn't worth the wait. 🧵
Devastating and awful news about Sir David Amess. He was kind, decent and simply doing the job he loved. A terrible loss. My deepest condolences and love to his family and friends.
Deeply concerned about the terrible news. All of my thoughts are with David and his family.
Kwasi Kwarteng is supposed to be the Business Secretary not the weatherman. A new low for government energy policy when all they can do is hope for a mild winter. ft.com/content/9f5062…

Increasingly clear that Rishi Sunak is blocking vital action to meet our net-zero target with just weeks to go until COP26. We need a Chancellor who takes the climate crisis seriously and recognises that green investment now will save money down the road. twitter.com/HarryYorke1/st…

Mobilising our major businesses. We’d require financial institutions and FTSE100 companies to publish their carbon footprint and adopt credible 1.5C-aligned transition plans.
Protecting nature.  By ending deforestation and ensuring all emissions reduction protects and promotes nature. We also need a robust Net-Zero and Nature Test for all government spending.
Pressuring the big polluters.  By calling for 1.5C-aligned targets from the big emitting countries, phasing out fossil fuels, and ensuring a just transition for workers.
Supporting the most vulnerable.  By reversing the overseas aid cut, delivering and surpassing the $100 billion pledge to help developing countries cut emissions and adapt to climate change, and vaccinating the world's poorest.
Leading by example.  Climate action must start at home. By investing £28bn every year until 2030 to tackle the climate crisis, we can protect the planet and create secure jobs in the UK.
Today I set out how Boris Johnson and his government can make Cop26 in Glasgow the success it needs to be, even at this late stage. Read my full speech and support our key demands to Keep 1.5C alive 👇🏻labour.org.uk/press/ed-milib…Czu

Get off the sun lounger and start getting serious on climate change, @Ed_Miliband tells the PM. The Shadow Business Sec has strong words for the Govt ahead of the COP26 climate conference. RC #KayBurley

'That should be a government programme.' Shadow Business and Energy Secretary @Ed_Miliband is calling on the government to provide home insulation. He tells @susannareid100 and @richardm56 that it shouldn't be costing lower income families 'more to go green.'

We cannot let Cop26 be the greenwash summit. It’s time for the Prime Minister to get off his sun lounger, be a statesman and make Glasgow the success we need it to be. Boris Johnson must treat this summit with the seriousness which it deserves. theguardian.com/environment/20…
The growing energy crisis is hitting British industries and businesses hard. Turning our backs on them will hold back jobs and growth, and is terrible value for money. That's why I wrote to the Chancellor today urging him to support our energy intensive industries.

It’s clear from the last 24hrs that in the face of their failed energy policy the Government has nothing to offer business or consumers. The Government that got us into this mess because of a decade of inaction, is paralysed by the scale of the crisis and cannot get us out of it.
21 days until #COP26 begins and we still have no: ❌Comprehensive net zero strategy ❌Treasury Net Zero Review ❌Heat and Buildings Strategy Not exactly suggestive of a government straining every sinew to demonstrate how to deliver on climate commitments ahead of the summit.

Our energy policy is in a total mess under this government. The last thing it needs is to be tied up with the finances of the Conservative Party. We need a government making decisions in the national interest, not in the financial interests of the Conservative Party.
In his deeply unconvincing interviews this morning Kwasi Kwarteng also failed to tell the truth on Aquind. He has a vital position safeguarding our energy supplies. He must be straight with people. He must correct the record and recuse himself from making the decision on Aquind. twitter.com/georgegreenwoo…
So now Kwasi Kwarteng admits he hasn’t asked the Treasury for help for firms paying the price of the government’s failed energy policy. When businesses and families need someone to fight their corner, he is totally failing in his duty. bbc.co.uk/news/business-…
We are facing an energy price crisis made in Downing Street. With millions struggling to pay their bills and industry warning of shutdowns, it’s time for Boris Johnson to take responsibility. My piece in the Independent👇 independent.co.uk/voices/energy-…C

I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of James Brokenshire. A truly decent and kind man. My deepest condolences go out to his family.
Spiralling energy prices will be devastating for families and businesses. We are less resilient and more vulnerable because of a decade of government failure. This is a crisis made in Downing Street.
Great to see #GreatHomesUpgrade launched by @NEF today. Delivering warmer homes, lower household bills, and good jobs across the country is a no-brainer. That is why a Labour Government would fund a house by house, street by street 10-year home insulation and retrofit plan. 👩‍🏭twitter.com/NEF/status/144…bOf
The Government’s appalling complacency has led to the supply chain crisis for businesses & consumers during the vital ‘golden quarter’ of trade. My article today in @politicshome outlines why this is a crisis made in Downing Street. politicshome.com/thehouse/artic…

If he wants to see higher wages, he would have a plan and work with business and unions to make it happen. He would increase the minimum wage to at least £10 p/h, as Labour pledged. And if he cares about families having more in their pockets, he would not cut Universal Credit.
Boris Johnson is living in a parallel universe, in denial about the crisis facing Britain’s families. He would have us believe that chaos at the pumps, shortages in our shops, soaring energy prices is part of some masterplan for a stronger economy. It’s nonsense and he knows it. twitter.com/BBCPolitics/st…
It's a huge contrast with Labour where @RachelReevesMP has put climate action at the heart of our agenda, pledged to be the first green chancellor and set out the investment to do it. No wonder the government are such climate delayers when this Chancellor has no interest in it.
Rishi Sunak’s near total silence on climate, the biggest economic challenge we face, is deeply worrying. The sole mention went to the green homes grant — which he slashed funding for. Climate action offers huge potential to create jobs - it’s terrible he fails to recognise this.
The Tories are taking the British people for fools over rising prices. If prices are rising faster than wages, then wages are not really rising at all. We all know it. A little thread... 🧵twitter.com/BBCPolitics/st…x

Time is running out to avoid a winter of discontent. The Government must address the shortage of HGV drivers, which is causing havoc with British supply chains.

9/ There is a global dimension to this. We are less than a month from the start of COP26. We are not where we need to be. Leading by example is essential: it's time to show the world that our targets and intentions are matched by substance and delivery. /ENDS
8/This week in Brighton, Labour set out a bold climate agenda. The challenge for the Tories is to match it in substance. Grand rhetoric won't do any more. Let them explain their plans for the coming decade, if they can match our commitment and if not, why not.
