Cameron reiterates Tory’s green commitment
by David Masters
June 17, 2008
David Cameron yesterday reaffirmed the Conservative Party’s commitment to the environment.
Speaking at Westminster’s Royal Horticultural Halls Cameron said that Britain’s current economic slowdown will not distract him from the Conservative’s green agenda.
Environmental groups such as Friends of the Earth had been accusing the Tories of jumping on the green bandwagon to gain support.
However, Cameron was keen to counter this claim, arguing that the environment will remain at the heart of all Tory policies.
He also argued that going green is the only way that Britain will steer its way through the current economic downturn.
According to Cameron, rising fossil fuel prices mean that green alternatives are becoming increasingly attractive.
Despite the speech, Friends of the Earth remain cynical about Cameron’s motives.
A spokesperson for the campaign group said that the Tory leader’s words mean nothing until the party stands up to Labour’s attempt to re-introduce nuclear.
