Conservatives mull net-zero targets

Following the impact of ULEZ on the Uxbridge by-election, several Conservative voices are weighing up the political value of sticking to net-zero pledges.

Robert Colvile, CPS Director, joined Niall Paterson on the Sky News Daily Podcast to discuss whether net zero policies can still be vote winners while Dillon Smith, Energy and Environment Researcher, told the i paper that poor communication around green policies, especially ULEZ, “contributed to its unpopularity”.

Robert also wrote his Sunday Times column (30th July 2023) on the subject.
