Letter to Nick Hurd MP on delayed publication of Climate Change Act emissions reduction plan

We are increasingly concerned that no Plan has yet been published. We are also concerned at how the expected timeframe for publication has been incrementally pushed back. As you know, the Government's stated intended timeframe for publication has evolved from December 2016, to February 2017, to "Q1" (i.e. no later than end of March) 2017 to "as early on in 2017 as possible".

Sections 12 and 14 of the Act require the Secretary of State to publish the Plan - along with an indicative annual range for the future net UK carbon account in the light of it- "as soon as is reasonably practicable" after the fifth carbon budget was set. The Act does not authorise indefinite delays.

The recently published 2016 Updated Energy and Emissions Projections only reaffirm how much progress is urgently needed.
