Motion text

That this House warmly welcomes the recent commitment of the European Council to binding targets for reducing carbon emissions; congratulates the Government on continuing to lead the climate change agenda; further welcomes the announcement from the Chancellor of the Exchequer that, following talks with leading manufacturers and retailers, the UK will be the first European country to phase out high energy GLS light bulbs from almost all domestic use and will complete this by 2011, thus saving a further 1.2 million tonnes of carbon and around £30 in respect of an average energy bill; recognises that, although switching light bulbs will pay for itself over time, many on low incomes need support to meet the initial costs incurred by taking this step, which is a clear example of how individuals can make a difference in combating climate change; and urges the House authorities to make the switch to energy saving light bulbs and expedite energy saving measures so that the Palace of Westminster can lead by example.
