Polluter Pays Team will meet Lord Greenhalgh this Wednesday – 20/10/2021
Yesterday, in response to a question by the Bishop of Durham – Paul Butler, Lord Greenhalgh confirmed that he and his team will be meeting with the team behind the Polluter Pays amendment. The exchange in the House of Lords was very interesting and Lord Greenhalgh received a lot of resistance from the lords with regards to the government approach to the Building Safety Crisis. It is well worth reading the transcript or watching the exchanges happen.

Lord Greenhalgh alluded to the fact there where some difficulties and hurdles to overcome. We believe that any remaining issues can be solved and we will work with government to address any issues that remain in place. We passionately believe that this can be done, and should be done!
