Here are the MLAs who voted in support of Net Zero by 2050 amendment
Last night, MLAs voted in favour of an amendment to include a target of Net Zero emissions by 2050 in the executive’s Climate Change (No2) Bill.
Edwin Poots’ bill included a target of 82 per cent reductions by 2050, but an amendment made by the Green Party was passed, increasing this percentage to 100.
Earlier on Tuesday, Clare Bailey’s first amendment – to bring forward the deadline for an 82 per cent reduction to 2045 – could not be moved as she was not present when it was called.
