This morning, I spoke at the Conservative Virtual Party Conference 2020 event 'UK Leadership on the Road to COP26' about the importance of the UK leading by example - the Prime Minister's announcement today shows that we are continuing to do just that.
I very much welcome today's announcement of a £160 million investment in ports and factories across the country to manufacture the next generation of turbines. As this Government becomes a world leader in low-cost green energy, it is believed that in ten years' time, offshore wind will be powering every home in the country.
This investment in offshore wind alone will help to create 60, 000 jobs in this country and accelerate our progress towards net zero emission by 2050. #BuildBackBetter
