Queen's Speech - Friends of the Earth reaction

Friends of the Earth press release

Responding to the inclusion of an Electricity Market Reform Bill in the Queen's Speech today [Wednesday 9 May 2012], Friends of the Earth's Executive Director Andy Atkins said:

"The Prime Minister must resist pressure from fringe elements within his party to 'lurch to the right' on energy - 85 per cent of the public back moves to invest in clean British energy from the sun, sea and wind.

"The Prime Minister must honour his pledge to lead 'the greenest Government ever' and seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to make our power system cleaner, more affordable and less reliant on increasingly imported fossil fuels."

The environment charity also welcomed the introduction of a Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill to enforce the Supermarket Code of Practice. Executive Director Andy Atkins said:

"Supermarkets have been abusing their power for far too long by limiting customer choice and squeezing the life out of farmers by paying them too little.

"The Government must now act quickly - a strong watchdog is needed to loosen the supermarket stranglehold and give us all a fairer and less damaging food system."
