Asked if the Government was watering down its commitments on environmental emissions following reports this morning, the PMS said that there had been a statement from the Secretary of State, saying that the details were still being finalised, but on the issue of coal-fired power stations, it would not be possible to meet the standard unless those power stations employed carbon capture and storage. There was no question of the Government watering down its commitments on climate change and moving to a low-carbon economy.
