Labour candidate Liz Savage has sent a message to Green Party supporters following their decision not to field a candidate in Southport for the General Election.
Liz remarked “In some ways it’s unfortunate that Green Party supporters are being denied the choice they had two years ago. However I want to make an appeal to them directly to support our range of environmental policies in this election. Labour has set out a range of green policies including a ban on fracking, a pledge to repower Britain with a low carbon electricity system by 2030, and to secure a Brexit deal that doesn't reduce UK environmental standards. In addition our new City Mayor, Steve Rotheram has pledged to shift to a zero carbon Merseyside by 2040 and to create a Liverpool City Region Renewable Energy Company.”
