Campaign reply - Fossil Fuel Pensions

A number of constituents have written to me regarding the recent campaign asking MPs to divest their pension of fossil fuel industries.

I completely understand what an important issue climate change is to many in St Austell and Newquay and indeed, many around the world.

I have long since been a supporter of various environmental groups including Green Peace, Surfers Against Sewerage and other Ocean conservation organisations. I welcome further interest and support from constituents.

I was delighted to be able to join my colleagues in signing the pledge.

Even though many positive steps have been taken by this Government I realise there is much more to do and I will continue to work hard on this important issue.
