Lynne Featherstone MP and the Haringey Liberal Democrats have organised a local public meeting with the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey MP.
The meeting will taking place on Wednesday 19th November, from 7pm onwards at the Birchwood Centre, 171 Fortis Green Road, London N10 3BG.
At the meeting, residents will have the chance to question the Lib Dem Secretary of State and put forward ideas about future policy on green issues.
In Government, the Liberal Democrats have already secured:
- A commitment to halving UK greenhouse gases by 2025.
- 200,000 new green jobs by investing in renewable energy. We have already doubled the amount of electricity generated from offshore wind.
- 1 million new trees in England, as part of the first government tree planting programme since the 1970s.
- A 5p plastic bag charge to help clean up our environment and protect Britain’s natural habitat.
Lynne Featherstone commented:
“Protecting our environment for future generations is essential. It’s also important to raise awareness of green issues, and discuss the ways we can best tackle threats like climate change.
“That’s why I am holding a public meeting in our local area, with the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey MP.
“The Lib Dems have made huge progress on green issues in Government, but there is plenty of work still to be done. If you want to ask the Secretary of State any questions, or put forward ideas about how to strengthen Government policy on the environment – please do join us.”
