On 31 October 2021 we sent a second letter to the PM, copied to the Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction, Angus Taylor, in which we expressed our serious concerns that the government had not committed to stronger emissions cuts by 2030 in advance of COP26. We also urged the government to “make rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions before 2030, matching and even beating the commitments made by our OECD partners”. Last week - 23rd March 2022 - we received a reply from an official in the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources on behalf of the Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction, Angus Taylor. This reply arrived nearly FIVE MONTHS after our letter was sent. You can read the reply here.
