Dunne seeks assurances over how government will drive forward delivery of Net Zero

Philip Dunne asks Climate Minister how the Government will establish cross-departmental structures to deliver the UK's Nationally Determined Contributions commitment to the COP programme and Net Zero Britain. 

Philip Dunne (Ludlow) (Con)

As the Prime Minister will no longer be chairing the Climate Action Strategy Committee, what structures working across Government Departments does the Minister expect the Prime Minister to use to drive delivery of the nationally determined contributions to the COP programme and net zero Britain?

The Minister for Climate (Graham Stuart)

I thank my right hon. Friend for his excellent question. As he will doubtless be aware, we are working across Government—as represented here today; people can see just how cross-Government our efforts are. The Climate Action Implementation Committee, which met only a couple of weeks ago and on which I and multiple Ministers sit, is very much driving forward reviewing our carbon budgets and ensuring that we have the policies to stay on track.
