Motion text

That this House looks forward to the completion of the review of climate change policy currently being undertaken by the Government, hoping that it will bring forward enhanced measures to promote energy conservation, the deployment of renewable electricity generation and the substitution of fossil fuels in transport; is mindful of the strong suggestions being made that the Government should commission a new fleet of nuclear generating stations to assist in meeting carbon dioxide reduction targets; but cautions that, irrespective of environmental considerations, such a move would inevitably involve massive public subsidies which could be used to greater benefit in promoting the deployment of renewable generators and, most especially, the marine technologies of wave and tidal steam exploiting the uniquely rich natural energy resources of the United Kingdom.
