Sunak insists net zero delays ‘not about politics’ as Tories split over plan

Director Sam Hall said: “Today the PM has changed little of substance besides delaying the transition to electric cars.

“Sticking to the 2030 deadline would have saved UK motorists money, supported car firms that have invested in new EV factories, and unlocked crucial investment in charge point infrastructure. New measures to speed up grid infrastructure and incentivise heat pump uptake are very welcome, however.

“But the framing of today’s announcements has created an unhelpful impression for voters that the party is backtracking on climate action.”
