David Bailey on Labour £28bn green investment: " What policies are they actually going to pursue?

Labour is ditching its policy of spending £28bn a year on its green investment plan, in a major U-turn.

The spending pledge, announced in 2021, had been a key part of the party’s plans to reach climate targets and secure green jobs.

Sources insist the plan, which includes creating a publicly-owned green power company, is not being dropped altogether.

But Labour will no longer commit to investing £28bn a year to deliver it.

David Bailey spoke with the BBC about the future industrial strategy.
