A budget for a Green New Deal

Posted on

The Green Party and the Green New Deal Group published their pre-budget report today.

I have contributed to this, although I am not a member of the Green Party. As I say in my foreword to it:

This is a package for the short term that makes sense for the long term; a package where the debt we must incur now produces employment, green and financial benefits that more than pay for its cost; a package where the economic causes of the crisis are tackled at their root and a package that the people of the UK need - help in delivering them from a problem that was not of their making.

I commend it to the House.
