Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.7
We will also prioritise the environment in the next Budget, investing in the infrastructure, science and research that will deliver economic growth, not just through the 2020s, but for decades to come.
- This is a promise that investment in environmental initiatives will be a major part of the government’s first Budget.
- The March 2020 Budget did contain a host of green measures, although some groups and experts believe it didn’t do enough to tackle climate change.
- Despite valid questions about outcomes and future plans, the Budget did “prioritise the environment”, so this policy is ‘done’.
