In trust for tomorrow represents the greening of the Labour Party, shadow environment secretary Chris Smith said at its launch on Tuesday.
'We set out to integrate environmental concerns into all the relevant policy areas, including economic and industrial policy, transport, energy and agriculture. The green agenda can no longer be an optional extra. It is central to Labour's commitment to modernising the economy and increasing social justice.'
Labour proposes to establish a House of Commons environmental audit committee to hold ministers accountable for the environmental impact of their policies. Citizens will have environmental rights governing air and water quality and countryside access.
