Letter to Sadiq Khan on Climate Emergency Funding

Dear Sadiq

 

Climate Emergency Funding 

 

I have been contacted by Extinction Rebellion who have asked me to submit the following question to you:
 
“In May 2019 the UK Parliament declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency. Would this authority welcome extra funds from central government enabling it to provide a response commensurate with the risks we all now face?”.
 
I understand they are contacting Council and City Authority Leaders and Mayors across the country and will present all the answers to the Government calling for a budget that recognises the climate emergency enabling real action on decarbonisation.
 
I look forward to your response.


With best wishes,

 

Caroline Russell
Green Party Member of the London Assembly
