Steve Webb’s cream cake triumph

Steve Webb got to hold the Government to account whilst praising them for adopting Lib Dem policy yesterday in Parliament:

Commenting on Ed Miliband’s announcement that the Government will support an 80% cut in carbon emissions by 2050, first proposed by the Liberal Democrats, Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Steve Webb said: “I am glad the Government has finally come round to the reality that an 80% cut in emissions is needed if we are to stand any chance in the fight against climate change.”

Steve Webb went on to say:

“However, Mr Miliband appears to think he can simply ignore the hugely polluting aviation and shipping industries. It’s like telling everyone you’re going on a calorie-controlled diet but not counting cream cakes.”

Steve wrote about the Lib Dem campaign to add more weight to the Government’s carbon targets here on the Voice in February and June

The Government also climbed down on the issue of feed-in tarrifs, despite insisting barely a month ago that they would not be part of the UK’s energy market.
