Hull MP asks PM for green target to boost Humber jobs

Following G7 leaders' commitment to eliminate fossil fuel use this century, Diana Johnson MP today asked the Prime Minister for an interim UK 2030 decarbonisation target within two years.

Doing this would deliver huge further private investment in renewable energy in areas like Hull and the Humber.

Diana Johnson MP asked the Prime Minister: "If we are to play our part in meeting the G7’s commitment to eliminate the use of fossil fuels in this century, we will need binding targets such as the 2030 decarbonisation target, which could bring huge investment to areas such as Hull.

"Will the Prime Minister commit to bringing in such a binding target in the next two years?"

The exchange took place today at 1.38pm in the House of Commons.
