Clive Lewis, MP for Norwich South, is the latest to join Labour’s new front bench after today’s announcement that he will become a Shadow Minister, working as part of Labour’s Energy and Climate Change team.
Clive Lewis said:
“It is a great honour to be given this responsibility so early in my parliamentary career.
“Meeting our energy needs in a secure and sustainable way is vital for the environment and in our battle to combat climate change. It is also a huge opportunity for jobs in Norwich and the surrounding area. We have the expertise to be a centre of excellence in the field, we just need the political will to make it happen, something that has been sadly lacking from the Tories.
“The Tories once promised they would be the greenest Government ever, but their actions paint a very different picture. Over the next few months and years, I will put tackling climate change at the heart of my new role.”
