MP'S PETITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Maria Caulfield MP has launched a Parliamentary petition calling on the UK to host the next global climate change summit, COP26, in London next year.

The petition will be delivered both to the Prime Minister and to Parliament in mid-June and is to show the public’s support for the UK hosting the global summit which will see world leaders setting out the next stages of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

The petition can be found at www.mariacaulfield.co.uk/bringcop26tolondon or physical copies can be obtained by contacting Maria Caulfield’s office. All signatures must be returned to the Lewes MP by Friday 14th June, in time for the petition to be presented to the Prime Minister and in the House of Commons by Maria Caulfield MP.

Maria Caulfield MP said “We all know how important tackling climate change is. The UK has a chance to take leadership of the issue by hosting COP26 in London in 2020, and I want the people of Lewes to show Parliament and the world how much we care about our environment and tackling climate change. I would urge all constituents to support my campaign and sign my petition to bring the next global climate change summit to the UK.”
