To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of climate mitigation and natural disaster recovery throughout the regions of the country in the last ten years; and what funding he plans to allocate to those matters in the next ten years.
Climate change mitigation and natural disaster recovery are priorities for this government. Investment in reducing the UK’s contribution to climate change and managing its impacts can deliver benefits across the UK. This is why we have placed clean growth at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy. Future funding decisions are a matter for the Spending Review.
