November has become synonymous with climate action due to COP27 being hosted in Egypt earlier this month. The Prime Minister had no intention of attending COP27 and was shamed into attending – another Tory U-Turn. Britain needs to take climate leadership seriously. Instead Rishi Sunak prefers giving oil and gas giants tax breaks, blocking renewables, and making no progress on a deposit-return scheme.

I am proud to be a part of a Government-in-waiting who prioritises our planet and nature. Labour is committed to 100% clean power by 2030. This plan would not only help the world, but it would cut bills, increase the UK’s energy security, create skilled jobs for the future, and become a clean energy superpower. Further, Labour would establish GB Energy, a publicly-owned energy company to invest in the various green energies available.

I am proud to continue my work on climate change. Below you can read what I’ve done both locally and in Parliament.

At the start of the month I joined Scottish Labour Leader and friend Anas Sarwar MP at the Glasgow Central Mosque. This eco-mosque has had 130 solar panels installed, cutting approximately 18,000kg of CO2 emissions per year. Of course, this has also passed on savings to the mosque who now is able to use these energy savings onto other eco-projects focused around the local community. It was a great honour to attend this mosque and see the hard work being done to prioritise the environment and nature within Islam.

In Parliament, I joined the APPG for the Environment in the launch of the 10-point plan for climate and nature. This plan is an important guide in how the Government can prioritise nature and the environment over the next year. You can read the plan in full here.


I hosted an event called ‘Islam and the Environment’ here in Whalley Range to discuss the importance of climate action within Islam. You can read most about the event on the post here.

I also hosted a Climate Action Coffee Morning which I was delighted to see so many passionate constituents turn out on a Saturday morning to discuss the important issue. I had the opportunity to discuss why climate action and the environment are so personally important to me, as well as hear about the various projects my constituents are working on in Manchester and across the UK.


Finally, I had the opportunity to attend Greenpeace Manchester’s viewing of their film ‘The Cost of Living’. The film focused on the Tory-chaos which has led to people across the country struggling to make ends meet. The Government must invest in clean energy, without hesitation, as well as insulate homes across the country to lower bills and secure our energy future.
