Catherine Bearder MEP - Furious at Commission U-turn on tar sands

The European Commission has proposed changes to the fuel quality directive that would abandon obligatory labelling of tar sands oil as highly polluting.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder said:

"I am absolutely furious with this. I will be talking to Ed Davey and I am sure he will be just as concerned as me.

"Tar sands oil is very bad news for Europe and the planet as a whole. We must do all we can to stop its importation."
