Response to Government consultation on phasing out internal-combustion-engined vehicles

Energy Alton and Alton Climate Action & Network have submitted a detailed response to the Government’s consultation on ending the sale of new petrol, diesel and hybrid cars and vans.

We want the phase out date to be dictated by the urgency of the climate emergency, not the convenience of consumers and manufacturers.

We regret that this consultation does not include the manufacture of HGVs and other forms of transport which are so important in reducing greenhouse gas emissions
