CLIMATE change campaigners are being supported by the MP for Pudsey, Horsforth and Aireborough.

Stuart Andrew met constituents at the Time is Now climate change lobby in Westminster and pledged to make sure their voices were heard in Parliament.

Mr Andrew stressed his support after attending the mass lobby, which involved more than 130 organisations. Organisers say the lobby represented more than 15 million people – ranging from aid agencies CAFOD, Christian Aid and Islamic Relief to community groups including the Women’s Institute and environmental organisations such as WWF, National Trust and Friends of the Earth. It follows global environmental protests, and the declaration of a climate and environment emergency by Parliament.

Mr Andrew said: “It was a pleasure to meet my constituents at what I understand to be the biggest ever mass lobby for climate, nature and people. I have heard and listened to their views and I do agree with them – we do need to act in order to address our climate change emergency. It is clear that the climate and environmental crisis is a mainstream issue held dear by many of my constituents, and from people all across the country. I’ll be working to make sure their voice is heard in Parliament at this critical moment for climate, nature and people.”
