Climate Change Bill [HL]
Lord Teverson (Whip; Liberal Democrat)
I thank the Minister for that response, which I think was fairly positive. I know that we have had this debate about final targets and meeting each individual one, but, as I said, Clause 1 makes absolutely clear what we are talking about. What we on these Benches are looking for at a strategic level is a duty and a responsibility—which is in this general section of the Bill—on the Climate Change Committee to assess policy in relation to outcome and targets. I understand and welcome what the Minister said and I think that this is a move in the right direction.
