- Labour Unveils Radical Plans to Tackle the Climate Emergency
- Plymouth is Leading the Way with More National Marine Parks Planned
- Luke: “Plymouth is truly Britain’s Ocean City.”
Labour today unveiled their Plan for Nature, a bold, radical plan to tackle the climate emergency. A Labour government will invest nearly £10 billion over the next ten years to restore nature, adopting natural solutions to climate change, recovering our islands’ biodiversity, reducing waste, and protecting vulnerable habitats and species both on land and in the seas around us.
Plymouth Sound was named the first National Marine Park in the country. Two years ago, Luke Pollard led this initiative, and Labour has pledged to follow Luke’s lead and establish new National Marine Parks around the country.
Luke Pollard, running for re-election as the MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said:
“Two years ago in the 2017 General Election, I proposed that Plymouth Sound be the UK’s first National Marine Park. For me it was the perfect way to tell our story, get more involved with our unique marine environment and build pride in our city and our heritage. Plymouth is truly Britain’s Ocean City and I am proud that Plymouth took the lead and our vision is going to be adopted around the country.”
Our planet is facing a climate emergency. Global temperatures are breaking records year on year, sea levels are rising to unprecedented levels, species are being lost, and biodiversity is at risk. Addressing the environmental challenges that we face requires a transformational effort. Labour’s Plan for Nature sets out how we will take bold new actions in response to the ecological impacts of the climate and environment emergency.
