UK pressured to ratify CC deal 7 September 2016

Pressure grows on UK to ratify Paris climate change deal (via BBC News)

Pressure is growing on the UK government to ratify the Paris climate change deal immediately.

A spokesman for the prime minister told the BBC the UK would ratify “as soon as possible”, but did not suggest a date.

But Labour, the Lib Dems, SNP and the Greens say the UK has lost its long–term leadership on climate after the US and China jointly ratified the deal at the weekend.

They say there is no good reason for the UK to delay.

Labour warns that unless ministers start the ratification process right away they will attack the government’s “failures” on climate policy in an opposition day Commons debate on Wednesday when a motion will call for immediate action.

It is supported by the Lib Dems, SNP and the Greens.

Some analysts believe ministers are delaying the process until they have their long–awaited low carbon plan in place.

This plan was due last year but postponed until late this year following the chancellor’s sweeping cuts to subsidies for clean energy.
