Green Day in Westminster

A packed Climate Change Day yesterday in Westminster:
- highlight was going to Department of Energy and Climate Chnge with the team from the Green Alliance to hold our long awaited meeting with Greg Barker following last November's Green Deal summit. It went well as a first meeting and our foot is now in the door to DECC, and they have promised to work with us in the coming months as the consultation on the Green Deal progresses. We have further meetings to follow.
- started the day by meeting Charles Hendry concerning the biomass energy situation
and managed to get in to the Chamber for the debate on cycling with my Liberal Colleague Dr. Julian Huppert - we both back the Times campaign on cycling reforms.
- was proud to say I cycle to work and definitely had the helmet hair to prove it yesterday.....
