Thanks to everyone who got in touch with me ahead of tonight’s votes on the #Environment Bill.
I voted for:
A ban on peat burning in upland areas
A national tree strategy for England akin to the Welsh Government‘s ambitious Woodlands For Wales strategy here in
A ban on fracking similar to the moratorium on fracking we have here in Wales
Measures to promote & protect biodiversity
Labour’s amendments reflected the will of communities across the UK to preserve our natural environment. It was very disappointing to see them voted down by the Conservatives.
