Cuffe promises Climate Bill will be published before year end
2 Dec 2010
The Friends of the Earth environmental group yesterday said a generation of environmentalists would "never forgive" the Green Party if it did not pass a climate change law before leaving office.
Mr Cuffe said yesterday that his party had managed to introduce significant legislation such as civil partnerships for same sex couples and an updated Planning Act. He said the climate change bill would be published before the end of the year -- although he could not say if it would be passed into law.
"It's a very ambitious programme, we're not going to get through it all, but I'm very proud of what we have achieved," he said.
