Motion text

That this House regrets that the UK is not giving the establishment of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) its wholehearted support; notes that global subsidies to renewable energy have amounted to one-eighth of those given to fossil fuels and that a global approach to the promotion of renewable energy is urgently called for; and therefore urges the Government to recognise that it cannot claim to be a global leader on tackling climate change if it is not prepared to will the means to mitigate it and join with 76 other signatory countries seeking to make IRENA work.
