Early Day Motion - Incandescent Lightbulbs

Ask your MP to sign this Early Day Motion.

EDM 947

Hodgson, Sharon

That this House welcomes the decision of Australian Prime Minister John Howard to ban the sale of high energy-using incandescent lightbulbs as a vital step in the battle against global warming; notes that these bulbs waste a staggering 80 per cent. of the energy they consume through heat rather than light; and calls on the Government to introduce similar legislation in the UK and to encourage similar moves across the European Union.
