Max says: "People won’t be fooled by MP’s climate change bill"

Reacting to the news that Cheltenham MP Alex Chalk has introduced a climate change bill to parliament, Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Cheltenham Max Wilkinson said:

While at first glance this looks like a useful gesture, an examination of Alex Chalk’s voting record shows his true colours on the environment and I’m confident people won’t be fooled by this cynical attempt at greenwashing.

“Since he became MP, he’s backed reckless policies to the cost of the environment like slashing support for renewable energy, the promotion of fracking, selling off the green investment bank and airport expansion too.

“If he wants us to take his environmental credentials seriously, he should admit those mistakes of the past and campaign to undo them without delay.”
