Saqib Bhatti, Member of Parliament for Meriden asked the Prime Minister join him in commending Solihull Borough Council for their commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030.

Saqib Bhatti asked the Prime Minister:

“Does the Prime Minister agree that through the establishment of the Office for Environmental Protection, which will hold this and future Governments to their environmental commitments, it is the Conservatives who are driving the environmental agenda? Will he join me in commending the Conservative-led Solihull Borough Council for its commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030?”

In replying the Prime Minister said:

“It of course brings me great joy to congratulate Solihull Borough Council on its path-breaking leadership. The council is of course following in the footsteps of the national Government and my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), who led the way in setting a target for carbon zero by 2050. This Conservative Government are going to leave our country and our environment in a better state for the next generation.”
