New Report Adds Weight to Criticism of Tory Carbon Capture Betrayal

Cameron has Questions to Answer as North Sea ‘Ideal Location’ for CCS

The North Sea would be an “ideal location” for storing carbon dioxide, a report by the Global CCS Institute has said – putting further pressure on David Cameron to U-turn on his betrayal on investment in Peterhead.

The intervention comes as the deeply unpopular Prime Minister visits Scotland for the Scottish Tory conference.

Cameron betrayed an election vow to invest £1bn in Carbon Capture and Storage technology which was widely expected to be based in Peterhead.

The broken promise has cost 600 jobs in the North East while shirking the UK’s responsibility to tackling climate change.

Commenting, SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“This intervention has added weight to the growing criticism of the Prime Minister’s betrayal to the North East.

“Peterhead was expecting to benefit from huge investment, creating hundreds of jobs in a cutting edge field. Yet the miserly Prime Minister has betrayed his election promise – hurting the local economy as well as our planet.

“David Cameron’s flying visit to Scotland is a perfect opportunity to talk substance on future of north sea CCS rather than lecturing Scotland and making personal jibes – he should deliver on his promise to Peterhead and invest in this much-needed green technology.”
