Responding to the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon’s letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Climate Change and the future of the Cambo Development, GMB General Secretary Gary Smith said:

“Our political class still fail to recognise the realities of gas, where our nations are increasingly dependent on imports to supply the four-fifths of households that rely on it for heating – there is little honesty here for consumers or the hundreds of thousands of jobs dependent on the sector.

“Rather than political posturing, our leaders need to take responsibility and properly collaborate on a credible energy and industrial strategy, ensuring affordable and secure supply, while stopping the mass export of the green jobs we need to support the delivery of our net zero targets.”
