Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on the warning from the Committee on Climate Change that the UK is not on track to meet its carbon reduction targets in the 2020s, said:

“This warning should be a wake-up call for the Government. David Cameron promised to lead the 'greenest government ever' but on his watch investment in clean energy has hit a seven year low, fewer people are making their homes more energy efficient and now carbon emissions are rising.

“To get back on track to cut the country's carbon emissions - and give a shot in the arm to Britain's flatlining economy - David Cameron should set a decarbonisation target to clean up our power supply by 2030.”
