Simon Hoare, North Dorset's Conservative MP until the dissolution of Parliament, replied to my request for his views on the climate emergency by saying: 'As I don’t know what the questions will be [at the 21 November hustings] I’m obviously not sure what my answers will be.'
But he said he was prepared to give the following what he called 'a top line flavour' of his views:
'My main thrust will be: energy efficient building regulations, use of economic instruments to nudge behaviours, positioning 2050 as an end date not a target, and finally supporting initiatives to make our sophisticated lives more sustainable/less impactful.'
So that's a full house: all four North Dorset Parliamentary candidates' views on the climate emergency are now on this Forum.
Pin 'em down on 21 November!
