UK Bid to Host UN Climate Conference 2020
I rise to present a petition from 125 pupils of Western Road School in Lewes, in addition to the 624 signatures presented to this place earlier this week from constituents in Lewes. The petitioners declare that
“climate change is a serious and pressing concern and needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world”,
and further, that the UK has leading role to play in tackling climate change in the future.
Following is the full text of the petition:
[The petition of residents of the constituency of Lewes,
Declares that climate change is a serious and pressing concern and needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure that London hosts the upcoming COP 26 Climate Change Conference in 2020.
And the petitioners remain, etc.]
