On Wednesday I joined my colleague Thangam Debbonaire MP for Bristol West for a Westminster Hall debate on the role pension funds can plan in tackling the climate emergency and the transition to net zero emissions. I fully support the Divest Parliament campaign and remain bitterly disappointed that, despite our wishes, the parliamentary pension fund still holds fossil fuel investments. Please rest assured that I’ll continue to keep the pressure on. You can watch the highlights of the debate on the link below.
MPs have declared a #ClimateEmergency. But now, they need to back this up with real action. Yesterday's historic debate in Parliament saw MPs from across political lines come together and back #DivestParliament 🙌
