"In order to reach our target of net-zero by 2050, we need a robust strategy in place to decarbonise the most polluting sector of our economy: transport.
"The Transport Decarbonisation Plan, due for publication this summer, must provide the framework for how we reach our emissions targets, utilising regulatory change and funding where necessary, but also by mobilising private investment.
"I have a particular interest in the development of electric vehicle sales and infrastructure, but we will need to see tangible strategies across every transport mode to meet our targets.
"I am very pleased to have secured this Westminster Hall debate, which will consider the challenges of decarbonising all modes of transport, and the strategies required in the forthcoming Transport Decarbonisation Plan to ensure a holistic approach to decarbonisation across the next two decades."
