The Scottish Government is to reduce the amount of money it spends tackling climate change by ten per cent, according to environmental campaigners. WWF Scotland said analysis of draft budget figures showed that £456m would be spent on tackling climate change in 2016-17, down from £502m the previous year – a drop of almost £46m. It comes after advisory body the Committee on Climate Change urged the Government that more action was needed to meet future targets. Campaigners are now calling on finance secretary John Swinney to amend his draft budget and invest in a low-carbon future.
