On Wednesday 3rd November, following the start of COP26 in Glasgow, the Prime Minister gave a statement to the House regarding the G20 World Leaders Summit.
He updated us on the G20’s commitment to phase out coal use, reiterated the commitment to the Paris Agreement 1.5c global temperature goal, and numerous agreements coming out of the COP26 conference.
I took the opportunity to ask the Prime Minister about the UN Secretary-General’s comments about the difficulty meeting the 1.5c goal, and that ‘we don’t need more oil and gas’. I asked what support the UK Government is providing the Oil & Gas industry to help them decarbonise in a sustainable way.
