A first step towards progress with this important climate legislation – EU’s FQD re the tar sands
It is great news that Tim Farron & 5 other LibDem MPs have signed EDM 240 – TAR SANDS AND THE FUEL QUALITY DIRECTIVE tabled 12jun13 by Caroline Lucas. Tim emailed us: “Thank you very much for your recent email with regard to the essential need to constrain the market for oil that is produced from tar sands and thanks for your expert analysis that underpins this case. You are quite right that I share your concerns about such developments and I am pleased to confirm that I have signed EDM 240 to give my full support to the Motion” pdf of our emails to Tim Farron and his reply.
To have such a stated position is a welcome and necessary first step to enable political action. And we will be making good use of this opportunity – and hope to have more good news in the next newsletter.
