Climate Bill a huge opportunity – McGuigan

10 May, 2021 - by Philip McGuigan

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has said the Climate Bill is a huge opportunity for real climate action and supporting workers, families and rural communities. 

The North Antrim MLA said:

“Progress on the Climate Bill is a huge opportunity for the Assembly to deliver on real climate action.

“We are living through a climate emergency with disastrous effects on the natural world, our society and our economy – it’s time for a fair and just transition.

“That means having legislation which supports workers, families and rural communities while delivering a cleaner, healthier Ireland.

“Our farmers and food producers must be supported as they move to reduce emissions while continuing to produce high-quality food and they have a key role to play in shaping how we move forward. 

“This is a major step forward for the north. It’s important that we get it right as it moves through the Assembly.”
