Written answers (Question to Communications)

The report ‘Climate Change : A Cross-Party Consensus for Action’ was published by the All Party Climate Action Committee on Climate Action on 28 March 2019. I welcomed the report which reached cross party consensus on a number of difficult issues and the recommendations are being considered in the context of the work that is underway on the All of Government Climate Plan. I intend to respond to the Committee's Report in the forthcoming all of government plan to tackle climate disruption.
