LUDLOW MP Philip Dunne has visited the COP26 conference in Glasgow as part of his role as chairman of the parliamentary audit committee.

“The challenge to decarbonise the world’s economies is clearly massive, but the determination to do so was writ large from political leaders right across the spectrum of delegations and observers representing every country on the planet.” said Mr Dunne.

“This was the first COP climate conference I had attended, which makes comparison hard for me to make. But my impression was of a groundswell of positive statements and commitments in week one.”

“I was very pleased to have been able to co-Chair an event for parliamentarians.”
