Vale Labour chiefs welcome party's zero carbon pledge

Evesham Editorial 7th Oct, 2019   0

EVESHAM Labour chiefs have revealed their delight at a commitment the next Labour Government is committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

The Mid Worcestershire constituency recently passed a similar motion along with a number of other CLPs across the country and Vale Labour members were on hand to witness the pledge being rubber stamped at the party’s annual conference in Brighton.

David Haslam, chair of Evesham Labour Party and one of the delegates, said: “It will be a challenge for us all to live up to but we were delighted by the overwhelming support our motion received.

“Despite some press reports, most debates, including this one, took place with passionate debate but also in a respectful manner.”




Local members also gave their support to pledges such as the £10 an hour living wage for younger workers; free personal care for the elderly; free NHS subscriptions; an overhaul of universal credit and to scrap schools watchdog Ofsted.
