Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: ...sons, daughters, husbands and wives—179 British servicemen and women and 23 British civilians who gave everything for our country. We must also never forget the thousands more who suffered life-changing injuries, and we must pledge today to look after them for the rest of their lives. This report would have been produced sooner if it had been begun when Conservative Members and others...

Outcome of the EU Referendum (27 Jun 2016)

David Cameron: ...maximise Britain’s influence. We will obviously have to find a way, under the new Government, to work out how to work with the European Union to get the maximum effect for the British stance on climate change, on Syria, on how we try to prevent refugees from leaving Libya, and all the rest of it. Those will all be issues for a future Government. I know from all that happened in the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: G7 Summit (6 Jun 2016)

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

David Cameron: ...While chairing the Conservative party, my right hon. Friend did a massive amount to encourage more women to stand for Parliament. I am the first to say that there is still more to be done, but the change on the Benches around me is a significant tribute to her efforts. She talked about her charity work, and it seems as though, in pursuit of such causes, she is prepared to do almost...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Climate Change (24 Mar 2016)

David Cameron: The Government is committed to tackling climate change by reducing our emissions at home and pushing for ambitious action globally. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, my right hon. Friend the Member for Hastings and Rye (Ms Rudd), played a key role in Paris to secure the first global legally binding climate agreement. The focus now is on implementation. There are no plans...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Mar 2016)

David Cameron: Any proper look at the figures will find that the Government have a remarkable record on green energy. Let me take the Climate Action Network, which said that Britain is the second best country in the world for tackling climate change, after Denmark. That is our record. Since 2010, we have reduced greenhouse gases by 14%. We are over-delivering against all our carbon budgets. We secured the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Feb 2016)

David Cameron: ...companies have breached their licence. I am very happy to arrange for a meeting between him and other members of the all-party group with the relevant Ministers in the Department of Energy and Climate Change, so that we can try to get this fixed.

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

David Cameron: ...occasion. I absolutely agree with him. The big picture is this: when it comes to getting things done in the world that can help keep people safe in our country, or getting a bigger, better deal on climate change, do we get more because we are in the EU? Yes. Making sure we have sanctions against Iran that really work and get Iran to abandon its nuclear programme—do we do that through the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (16 Dec 2015)

David Cameron: Of course the greatest success is the Paris climate change talks. I want to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, who was one of the key negotiators who helped to deliver this global goal, which is so much better than what happened at Copenhagen and better even than what happened at Kyoto. Let me answer the hon. Gentleman directly on...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

David Cameron: I have had those conversations with President Putin on many occasions, most recently at the G20 summit in Antalya, and President Obama had a meeting with him at the climate change conference in Paris. As I have said before in this House, there was an enormous gap between Britain, America, France and, indeed, Saudi Arabia on the one hand and Russia on the other hand; we wanted Assad to go...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: CHOGM 2015: Malta (30 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...can build as it takes on the challenges of a modern world. The challenges have never been greater. This meeting provided an opportunity for leaders to discuss in particular extremism, climate change, the challenges faced by small states and sustainable development. Leaders were united in condemning the recent terrorist atrocities in Paris and elsewhere. They agreed that the Commonwealth...

Women and Equalities: Syria (26 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...hon. Friend for his support. I can certainly confirm that I will be having those conversations. President Hollande is coming to the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting on Friday to talk about climate change. I will be able to report to him very directly the feeling in the House of Commons about the need to stand shoulder to shoulder with our French allies and colleagues. There is then...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...of all, I believe that the previous Government does rightly claim that record: the world’s first green investment bank pioneered in Britain; a trebling of renewable energy; a meeting of all our climate change targets; contributing to an EU deal that means we go to the climate change conference in Paris with a very strong European record; and the ability to say to other countries that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ..., we ask people to pay higher energy bills, something I seem to remember the Labour party in the previous Parliament making rather a lot of. If you look at the speech by the Secretary of State for Climate Change, you can see the right balance between affordable energy and making sure we meet our green targets. That is what we are committed to. In addition, we are building the first nuclear...

Isil: National Security and Defence (23 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...the threats. We publish a risk assessment. The whole point of a national security strategy is to bring together all the threats we face as a nation—state-on-state threats, terrorism, pandemics, climate change and others—and set out in one place how we evaluate them and how we will respond to them. That is something that never previously happened. The right hon. Gentleman asked about...

Isil: National Security and Defence (23 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: anti-microbial resistance. We will also invest £1 billion in a new fund for the research and development of products to fight infectious diseases, known as the Ross fund, and £5.8 billion in climate finance to play our part in helping poorer countries switch to greener forms of energy. Taken together, these interventions are not just right morally—they are firmly in our national...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...That is why we have the taskforce and why the additional resources are going in. I am very happy to look at the project the hon. Gentleman talks about. It may be best for him to meet the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, because we have to make important decisions about all these technologies in the run-up to the Paris conference and beyond.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...for having more rapid economic growth, and we encourage others to take some of the steps that we have taken to deliver that growth. Finally, the right hon. Gentleman asked about renewables and climate change. I have to say that the summit on climate change was disappointing. There is still quite a lot of opposition from some countries on putting in place the things that are needed for a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ...we can defeat this terrorism both at home and abroad. Turning to the G20 summit, there were also important discussions on Syria and on dealing with other long-term threats to our security, such as climate change. Let me briefly address those. On Syria, we discussed how we do more to help all those in desperate humanitarian need and how to find a political solution to the conflict. Britain,...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: UN Climate Change Conference (16 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: I will attend the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Paris. I will meet world leaders to help lay the groundwork for an ambitious new global deal to address climate change. A global deal is the only way we can deliver the scale of action required to keep limiting the global temperature rise to below 2 degrees within reach. An ambitious...
