Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, met a number of local residents recently, who were among an estimated 12,000 people lobbying their MPs in Westminster for urgent action on the natural environment and climate change.
In the largest-ever environmental lobby of parliament, people from all corners of the UK were represented, with at least 300 MPs coming out to meet with their constituents.
MPs are being urged to pass ambitious new laws that create a healthier environment for people and wildlife, and to support measures that end the UK’s contribution to climate change by 2045.
“It was great to meet my constituents yesterday at the biggest ever mass lobby for climate, nature and people. I heard their views and I fully agree with them – The Time Is Now for action to create a cleaner and healthier world
“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.”
