Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business, Environment and Energy Secretary, responding to the government’s sector deal for offshore wind, said:

 

“As green groups slam the deal as woeful, industry groups say they could deliver so much more, and trade unions express concern over UK-based jobs and working conditions, there is one question for the government: why is its response so lacklustre when faced with the greatest challenge faced by any generation?

 

“Nothing less than a green industrial revolution will do to tackle climate change and seize the enormous economic opportunities of a low carbon future. That is why Labour has set out plans for a seven-fold increase in offshore wind by 2030, creating 120,000 jobs.

 

“Labour gets it, the public gets it, and it’s time the government stepped out of the way.”
