PRESS STATEMENT 03/10/08
Ed Miliband, the new Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, today
welcomed the creation of a new department to tackle the twin challenges of
energy security and climate change.
Mr Miliband said:
"I am looking forward to the responsibility of running the new Department of
Energy and Climate Change and working with colleagues across government,
including in particular Hilary Benn, who has led Britain's work on climate
change with skill and dedication.
"The new department reflects the fact that energy policy and climate change
are directly linked.
"My job is to make sure our policy on climate change is fair for ordinary
families and our policy on energy is sustainable for future generations.
"We will do all we can to ensure affordable fuel bills for people, put
Britain at the forefront of creating green jobs and play our part in ensuring
every country meets the climate change challenge.
"Climate change cannot be tackled by politicians on their own but through
politicians and people working together.
"I look forward to playing my part."
