MPs vote on declaring ‘climate emergency’

Chief Correspondent

Both Michael Gove and Jeremy Corbyn agree it’s a “crisis”.

The scale and speed of climate change has been thrown into focus by Extinction Rebellion and their protests in the centre of London.

Tonight, MPs have been voting on whether to declare “a climate emergency”. A motion tabled by the Labour Party called on the Government to take urgent steps to restore the UK’s natural environment.

In Wales, assembly members are also being asked to vote on a similar motion.
