Romsey was very well represented at Labour Conference in Brighton. As well as those in the picture above, Junayd and Mujahid Islam were both there, with Junayd having been elected as a delegate by Cambridge Constituency Labour Party, so entitled to vote on the motions being debated.
Rebecca Long-Bailey, Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy told us all about Labour’s plans for a Green Industrial Revolution:
Labour will deliver:
💧Public ownership of water and energy
⚡️£2.5m interest free loans for EVs
🚗£300m for community car sharing hubs
🌬People to take a majority stake in all off shore wind farms
☀️1 million solar panels
🔋£1.8billion for battery production factories
