Motion ref. S6M-00278.4

Addressing the Climate Emergency - Amendment

Submitted by: Alex Cole-Hamilton, Edinburgh Western, Scottish Liberal Democrats.
Date lodged: Tuesday, June 8, 2021

Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, June 9, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-00278 in the name of Michael Matheson (Addressing the Climate Emergency), insert at end "; recognises that rapidly reducing emissions in the transport sector will be critical to Scotland meeting its 2030 and 2045 targets; considers that achieving sustainability will require the acceleration of work, including the opening of new railway lines and stations, establishing a network of well-maintained rapid chargers for electric vehicles and additional support to rapidly increase active travel, and believes that, as an indication of its commitment to sustainability, the Scottish Government should immediately withdraw from its written agreement with Heathrow Airport to support the building of a third runway, which is incompatible with the climate emergency."
