No climate emergency yet says chief minister

Quayle traa dy liooar with the Island's actions

The Isle of Man will not declare a climate emergency until public feedback from the consultation is considered, according to the chief minister.

Howard Quayle says it is necessary to wait for the results of the environment department's climate change survey, before making any decisions.

It comes as the Labour party passed a motion in the UK Parliament this week, where opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn told the House 'we have no time to waste'.

The States Assembly in Jersey also followed suit in declaring an environmental and climate emergency.

However, Mr Quayle's says the Island's response is more traa dy liooar.
