UK To Lead World In Cutting Carbon Emissions

The Government will sign up to the "ambitious" target of a 50% cut in carbon emissions by 2025, the Energy Secretary has confirmed.

Chris Huhne told the Commons the Government had accepted the advice of its climate
advisers for the fourth "carbon budget", which runs from 2023 to 2027.

The minister, who is currently at the centre of claims that he persuaded someone else to take speeding penalty points on his behalf , said the decision would be reviewed in 2014.

But Mr Huhne added it sent a clear signal that the Government was serious about driving the transformation to a low carbon economy.
