Dunne asks COP26 President whether the current government structure can deliver net zero

Philip Dunne calls on the President of COP26 to comment on whether the structure of Government is best equipped to deliver the Nationally Determined Contributions commitment of 68% emissions reduction by 2030.

Philip Dunne (Ludlow) (Con)

Will my right hon. Friend comment on the ability of the current structure of government to achieve the ambitious target of the nationally determined contribution, namely a 68% reduction in emissions compared with 1990 levels by 2030?

Alok Sharma (The COP26 President)

My right hon. Friend has raised this issue with me before. It will of course be up to the new Prime Minister to see how he or she wants to strengthen the structures of government, but the key aim is for us to deliver on the commitments that we have made , and that is what we will be judged on at the next election.
