- Guaranteeing no runway development at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted (for the coalition’s lifetime).
- Expanding and further greening the Higher Level Stewardship scheme subsidising environment-friendly farming.
- Introducing a major Energy Bill to set up the Green Deal energy efficiency loan scheme, and recognising further government support is needed for it to succeed (see p 44).
