Motion text

That this House believes that man-made climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our world today requiring co-ordinated domestic and international action; notes with concern that the UK's ability to lead on this issue is compromised by the fact that domestic emissions of greenhouse gases have recently been rising; calls on the Government to introduce a strong Climate Change Bill which will put into place long-term targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and establish an independent body to monitor progress towards meeting those targets; further recognises there may be a case for allowing the independent body to set targets and require the Government to report annually on progress; welcomes the Government's response to the consultation on the draft Climate Change Bill which announced that the Independent Committee on Climate Change will re-examine whether the 60 per cent. target for emissions reduction is sufficient and whether aviation and shipping should be included; but notes with alarm that the committee will not report on these until late 2009, while 15 years worth of carbon budgets are to be set in 2008.
