Today, (26th June 2019), Damian Green MP for Ashford, joined his constituents and thousands of activists from across the country to show his support for 'The Time is Now' mass lobby on nature and climate.
Mr Green said: “We must take action to address the environmental issues that so many are campaigning on today. We must lower our use of plastic, lower air pollution and reduce the damage to our natural habitats.
The Government has made good progress – Parliament recently passed the Zero Carbon Emissions Bill, and it has put forward an ambitious Environment Bill which will encourage people to protect our natural habitat. This includes actions such as encouraging more wild flowers for bees and other species.
These all good steps, but we must continue to show other countries that everyone has a part to play in this.”
