Tomorrow (Tuesday 27 July) will see the UK House of Lords Science and Technology Committee publish a report on its views regarding the UK’s ambition to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The review will conclude that actions taken by the Government do not align with its ambition to achieve net zero emissions, nor do they take advantage of opportunities presented by batteries and fuel cells for the UK’s research and manufacturing sectors. A full report will appear next week.
The 14-strong Committee is headed by Lord Patel, a Tanzanian-British obstetrician and Crossbench peer, and a former Chancellor of the University of Dundee.
Other members include a predominance of the medical profession from all three parties and also Baroness Manningham-Buller, the retired Director General of MI5, another Crossbencher.
The enquiry set itself some interesting questions.
