Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

Yes. We do not intend to move away from annual targets. Having annual targets is challenging—I think that we are the only country that takes that approach; nevertheless, we have become accus...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

We have talked at length about the science and how revisions come about, and that applies across the board to all sectors. That answers the last part of your question, in a sense. It is a co...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

Are you asking about changes in the science?



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

Indeed. We had early advice last year and then we went back with an updated request because of the land use, land use change and forestry issue, so the CCC was responding in detail to a very...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham

One of the problems is that the goalposts have been changing constantly, because we have not thought about this or that, or we have not previously taken a long look at this or that. There ha...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 May 2018 [Draft] : 08 May 2018


Roseanna Cunningham
