UNITED KINGDOM PARLIAMENT — CLIMATE CHANGE EMERGENCY DECLARATION

433. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Minister for Environment:

I refer to the United Kingdom Parliament's declaration of a climate change emergency, which calls for net zero emissions by 2050 and a zero waste economy within the next six months. Will the state government follow the lead of the UK government and declare a climate emergency?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

The answer is no.
