The Divest Parliament campaign, which calls on Parliament’s pension fund to divest from fossil fuels, has announced that over 300 MPs (and 30 former MPs) from every party in Parliament have now signed its pledge.
Martin Whitfield MP pledged his support for the campaign earlier this year and has welcomed it reaching this important milestone of 300 MP supporters.
Commenting on the campaign, Martin Whitfield MP said:
“I am pleased to be one of the 300 cross-party MPs backing the #DivestParliament campaign. We must withdraw all political and financial support for the fossil fuel industry and invest in green/renewable technologies.
“I will continue to support the campaign and urge colleagues to join the 300 in making the divest Parliament pledge.”
