According to official figures, the Climate Change Act will cost the UK economy over £300 billion by 2030, costing each household £875 per annum.

Government should take immediate steps to prevent further economic harm and rising policy costs while simultaneously undertaking a comprehensive review of energy and climate policies to ensure that the United Kingdom as a whole can prosper as an independent trading nation after leaving the European Union.
