Boris Johnson sê die private sektor 'triljoene'’ sleutel tot die aanpak van klimaatkrisis

Kampvegters het woede uitgespreek na aanleiding van berigte George Eustice, die omgewingsekretaris, aanbeveel LP's verwerp byna alle veranderinge wat aan die Omgewingswetsontwerp deur die House of Lords, wat gedebatteer moet word deur in die Commons vanmiddag.

Die wysigings het groter beskerming vir antieke bosveld en die versterking van magte van die voorgestelde nuwe onafhanklike waghond ingesluit, die Kantoor vir Omgewingsbeskerming.

Ministers het voorheen gesê hulle wil hê dat die wetgewing voor die Cop26 klimaatberaad, wat begin op 31 Oktober, lei tot berigte eweknieë kan kies om hefboomfinansiering uit te oefen deur te dreig om die wetsontwerp te vertraag. Egter, die regering het gesê hy sal sy eie veranderinge na vore bring om “globale leierskap” voor die konferensie in Glasgow te demonstreer.

Groener VK, 'n koalisie van 12 omgewingsgroepe insluitend Friends of the Earth en Greenpeace, het die nuus as “uiters teleurstellend” beskryf, met die Groen Alliansie wat die regering daarvan beskuldig dat hy "vasbeslote is om 'n wetsontwerp aan te neem wat swakker huishoudelike beskerming vir mense en natuur sal insien".

Elders, sekretaris van justisie Dominic Raab sal vandag nuwe vonnisriglyne publiseer om die minimum tronkstraf vir terreurkomplote te verhoog 14 jare. Dit kom terwyl die polisie voortgaan om Ali Harbi Ali te ondervra, 25, oor die moord op Tory MP Sir Dawid amess verlede week. Ali is ingevolge die Terrorismewet aangehou.

Die oorgang na netto nul sal 'baie duur' vir verbruikers wees, Kwarteng erken

In 'n effens verwarrende boodskap, Kwasi Kwarteng het gesê die prys van verbruikers wat na netto nul oorskakel, sal deur private investering aangedryf word - voordat hy toegegee het dit sal steeds "baie duur" wees..

Praat met Sky News, die sakesekretaris het gesê dit is 'n "regverdige vraag" vir mense om te vra hoeveel maatreëls soos isolasie van huise en oorskakeling na lae-emissie voertuie sal kos.

Wys na leiding in die regering se nuwe Net Zero Strategie, gister gepubliseer, hy het gesê die dokument "probeer om groot hoeveelhede private investering na die VK te lok, en wat met private investering gebeur, is dat die eenheidskoste van die energie eintlik afgeneem word, dit is verlaag, dit is goedkoper".

“As ons terugkyk oor die afgelope nege jaar, die koste van daardie hernubare energie het geweldig afgeneem, iets soos twee-derdes. So, meer belegging, eintlik in diverse energiebronne, gaan eintlik koste op medium- en langtermyn verminder," hy het bygevoeg.

Egter, terwyl die aanduiding van pryse steeds duur sal wees vir 'n groot aantal huishoudings, Mnr Kwarteng gesê: "Dit is 'n fyn lyn wat jy moet trap tussen die oorgang maak en mense in wese dwing en koste op mense oplê om die oorgang te maak, en wat ons wil doen, is om mense by ons op die oorgang te hou, op reis.”

Die regering sluit Covid-toesluit uit ondanks NHS se oproep vir 'Plan B'-beperkings

Boris Johnson se regering sluit nog 'n Covid-toesluit of enige "verdere beperkings" hierdie winter uit, ten spyte van NHS-leiers se oproep vir ministers om "Plan B"-randstene af te dwing.

Te midde van nog 'n oplewing in Covid-gevalle, die NHS-konfederasie het ministers versoek om die rugsteunstrategie te implementeer - insluitend verpligte gesigbedekkings en om mense te vra om van die huis af te werk, skryf Adam Forrest.

Maar sakesekretaris Kwasi Kwarteng het gesê die regering stel nie daarin belang om randstene terug te bring nie. 'Ons wil nie inperking of verdere beperkings ingaan nie,” het hy Woensdag aan Sky News gesê.

Minister erken inflasie 'iets waaroor die regering bekommerd is'

Meer van Kwasi Kwarteng nou.

Die sakesekretaris het erken die regering is "bekommerd" oor die inflasiekoers wat tans die VK raak, despite weeks of reassurances from Boris Johnson that the economy is merely “waking up” from Covid and Brexit.

Asked to share figures given to him by the Bank of England, following reports inflation could reach 4 per cent in Britain, Mr Kwarteng laughed and said those “conversations are private”.

Hy het gesê: “I read all sorts of thingsthose are private conversations. But I see alsoI read lots of analysis from city economists and there’s a debate at the moment as to how long this inflation will last. I’m confident that it’ll be contained, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Cost of climate inaction greater than any estimate on net zero transition – Kwarteng

Business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng has been doing No 10’s media rounds this morning.

Praat met Times Radio, he said the cost of inaction on climate change would cost more than any Treasury estimates of moving to net zero.

Mr Kwarteng was asked about the costs of the widely-discussed Net Zero Strateg, published by the government on Tuesday, and he said:

“I think if we look at the green agenda, the transition broadly, we’ll know that the cost of inaction, eintlik, could be greater than actually doing things.

“As I’ve said, I actually think there’s a huge amount of economic opportunity. Look at the announcements regarding Nissan’s investments in terms of electric vehicles. I speak to Ben Houchen in the northeast, look at the investments there, the freeport.

“All of these things suggest to me that, eintlik, the economic opportunity, in terms of the transition, is huge and that’s what I’m focused on. ek dink, uiteindelik, that’s what’s going to drive huge amounts of prosperity, lots of prosperity in the UK.”

Terroriste minimum tronkstraf verhoog te midde van Amess-uitval

Terrorists who make plans to kill at least two people will face longer in prison under new sentencing guidelines published today, a new report suggests.

Justice secretary Dominic Raab has argued that the new advice for judges to hand down sentences of a minimum of 14 years would send a stronger message to those who plot to “kill and maim in the name of warped and fanatical ideologies”.

The Ministry of Justice’s move comes as police continue to question Ali Harbi Ali, 25, over the murder of Tory MP Sir David Amess last week. He is being detained under the Terrorism Act, berigte Lamiat Sabin.

The Sentencing Council has confirmed it will advise judges that the starting point for sentencing those who plot to kill with terror motives should be a minimum of 14 jare, Volgens Die tye.

LP's gaan Lords se wysigings aan Omgewingswetsontwerp verwerp

Environment secretary George Eustice has rejected almost all the changes to the Environment Bill voted for by the House of Lords, with reports suggesting he has advised MPs to do the same ahead of a Commons debate on the changes later today.

The changes included greater protection for ancient woodland and a legal duty on water companies to reduce sewage damage to rivers.

The Greener UK coalition said the government’s decision was “hugely disappointing,” especially ahead of this month’s Cop26 climate summit. But the government said it would be bringing forward its own changes to the bill, to demonstrate “global leadership” before the conference in Glasgow.

The government says the billwhich was published in 2019 – is designed to improve air and water quality, tackle plastic pollution, restore wildlife, and protect the climate.

The law sets up a new independent watchdog, die Kantoor vir Omgewingsbeskerming, to monitor progress on improving the environment. During the bill’s passage through the House of Lords, peers voted for an amendment which sought to strengthen the watchdog’s powers.

They also voted to reverse a government move to exempt defence, national security and fiscal policy from a requirement to consider environmental principles when making policies.

On Tuesday morning, wel, it was revealed Mr Eustice had formally recommended MPs reject almost all of the proposals.
