Caroline Lucas MP writes alternative Queen's Speech

Caroline Lucas MP writes alternative Queen's Speech
The Green Party's only member of parliament Caroline Lucas has created an alternative Queen's Speech for Channel 4.

In her official address at the opening of parliament the Queen outlined the development of an Energy and Green Economy Bill, which will be used to enhance the production of low-carbon energy and more efficient use of power.

Ms Lucas also highlighted her desire for further investment in renewable energy sources in her alternative speech, but she spoke about much more ambitious carbon reduction targets than the current government has planned.

"My government will seek effective global and European collaboration to combat climate change, in a globally equitable manner, which will involve a 90 per cent cut in UK CO2 emissions from 1990 levels by 2030," the Green Party leader told Channel 4.

She continued by stating that a ten per cent cut should be made in the coming year.

Many of the proposals laid out in the party's election manifesto were reiterated in the alternative speech, such as a lowering of public transport fares and the creation of a fairer tax system.

Ms Lucas holds the Brighton Pavillion seat with 31 per cent of the vote.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19799378-ADNFCR
