We must protect the environment and tackle climate change. Like Ed Miliband I think this is the single most important thing we can do for our children

Being green is at the heart of the Labour movement.

This is what Labour's Shadow Environment Secretary, Maria Eagle, said when she joined us in Hornsey & Wood Green for a discussion on Labour's green agenda on 14 April. 

It was a Labour Government that fought for a climate deal at the Copenhagen Summit, created the Department for Energy and Climate Change and introduced the world’s first Climate Change Act. 

It was a Labour London Mayor that introduced the Low Emission Zone and Congestion Charge scheme and it was a Labour Council Leader who introduced the first Borough-wide 20mph speed limit. 

We don’t just talk about green policies, we deliver green policies.

We must protect the environment and tackle climate change – I passionately believe this.

Like Ed Miliband, I think that this is the single most important thing we can do for our children and grandchildren.

Protecting the environment and building a sustainable future was my focus when I was Leader of Islington Council. It will be at the core of my work if I am elected as the Member of Parliament for Hornsey and Wood Green.

As you can see our meeting with Maria Eagle was packed - standing room only.  It showed the huge interest in environmental issues in this area.
