Commissioner Backed by Western Mail

A Western Mail editorial has backed Future Generations Commissioner Sophie Howe’s concern about the lack of carbon impact assessments published to accompany infrastructure projects.  Having declared a climate emergency, every spending decision should consider the impact that it will make on the emergency.  And such measures ‘should not be optional add-ons that can be disregarded if too much of a nuisance’.  The First Minister would have ‘looked ridiculous’ if approval had been given to the M4 Relief Road.
