The UK government will stick to plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030, but intend to review measures to reduce emissions from households. This was stated today by the Minister for Equal Opportunities, Housing and Leveling of the United Kingdom, Michael Gove, who also answered “yes” to the question by “Times Radio” whether to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will remain a focus of the executive.
However, regarding targets for installing heat pumps in new homes, Gove said: “This is an area that I think needs reviewing. It’s important that new homes meet net zero standards, but one of the challenges we need to keep in mind is with our existing housing stock.”
We are experiencing a real cost of living challenge and what we don’t want to do is force people to pay excessive amounts at this stage. We need to take a proportionate approach,” Gove added.
