10:10 reaction to the Budget

In response to the Budget Ellie Roberts, campaigner at 10:10 Climate Action, said:

It's back to the 70's with Hammond’s fossil fuel budget bonanza. The renewable industries of tomorrow risk leaving us behind as we chase the dirty industries of yesterday. Rather than supporting the likes of north sea oil we should be grasping the opportunities offered by the likes of onshore wind. 

Recent offshore wind success shows the potential for cheap, clean energy when the government gets behind it. In onshore wind we have another winner - we just need the government to grasp it.
