Labour slams Rishi Sunak’s plans to boost North Sea oil and gas

The Conservative Environment Network, a pro-green Westminster group with a network of Tory MPs, also supported today’s announcement.

Group spokesperson Lynsey Jones said: “With the impacts of climate change visibly worsening and the competition to win net zero investment intensifying, the UK needs bolder action to reach net zero by 2050.

“The Prime Minister’s announcement of two new carbon capture and storage clusters in the North Sea is welcome to develop this crucial industry. We can be a world leader in this technology, bringing investment to our shores, creating skilled jobs, and selling the service to other European countries.”
