Net-Zero plans may be paused

Nearly 1-in-6 Tory voters have the desire for Boris Johnson’s successor to put the net-zero push on hold, with more attention on the cost-of-living crisis.

That’s according to a poll by YouGov, which has discovered that only 30 percent of Labour and Liberal Democrat activists think the same move should well be made.

Rishi Sunak & Liz Truss are still vying to win the party leadership race and although the both have confirmed their aid for net-zero, tax reductions and supporting the economic situation of the country have been more at the front line of discussions.

The poll also displayed that the younger voters are far more helpful of maintaining the green push, whereas over 65s are in favour of a full review of net-zero policy.

Boris Johnson’s net-zero order was met with open arms in 2019, when it represented one of the Conservative Party’s greenest manifestos yet.

However, fears of sky-high costs have seemingly led many voters to prioritise the problem far less.

Currently, Rishi Sunak has stated his desire to fund more energy efficiency measures and Liz Truss is supportive of lifting the ban on fracking and removing green levies on energy costs.
