More on their full record
Procedure: European Scrutiny in the House of Commons.
Witnesses: Gavin Shuker MP and Kelvin Hopkins MP
To mark Fairtrade fortnight, I met this morning with farmers from the Kuapa co-operative in Ghana who sell Fairtrade cocoa that goes into Divine chocolate. May we have a debate in Government time to review what more might be done to boost Fairtrade?
We know that the greatest risk that the UK faces from climate change is flooding, but the developing world will be hit even harder, so we all need a global climate deal. Will the Minister commit the Prime Minister to attending Ban Ki-moon’s climate summit in September, as other world leaders will be doing, and to pushing for a stand-alone climate change goal in the post-2015 process?
