Greener UK

Tuesday 30 May 2017

The Greener UK Hustings gave the public and environmental organisations the chance to question the major parties' environment plans ahead of the general election.

Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green Party spokespeople were challenged on a variety of topics including what leaving the EU will mean for the environment, climate and energy policy, planning, farming and nature conservation.
