Roger Godsiff – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Prime Minister

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Roger Godsiff on 2015-11-06.

To ask the Prime Minister, whether he plans to attend the COP21 climate talks in Paris.

Mr 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 agreement will help drive a global, irreversible, transformational shift to a low carbon economy which will promote innovation and drive down the costs of low carbon technology, further enabling cost effective climate action and mitigation ambition in the future. It will also help to create a more competitive, stable and transparent framework and opportunity for business and investors.
