Rosebank oil field

Many constituents have contacted me about opposing the Rosebank oil field and I can tell you that I fully support this campaign.

I am completely opposed to the granting of new licences for oil extraction, and I will continue to call on the government to exercise the powers it has to stop granting them.

Opening new oil fields threatens to undermine our shared obligations to dramatically reduce emissions.

I want to see the government implement a managed phasing out of North Sea oil and gas extraction in line with the urgent need to reduce climate emissions and tackle the growing climate emergency.

I will continue to call on the government both in and out of parliament to adopt concrete actions and plans that are much needed to address the climate emergency.
