MSP attacks council on energy rates

Glasgow Cathcart MSP James Dornan has urged Glasgow city council to do more to reduce its energy consumption.

A report by Audit Scotland found GCC was responsible for eight per cent of all energy consumption across the public sector, whilst local authorities such as Edinburgh and Aberdeen were responsible for four and three per cent respectively.

James Dornan highlighted this issue at environment questions in The Scottish Parliament.

He said: “This report is a scandalous indictment on Glasgow city council and I hope steps have been taken to show a considerable improvement in its energy consumption rates.

“Being responsible for eight per cent of all energy consumption across the public sector gives Glasgow city council the worst record of any local authority in Scotland.

“I’m sure that the people of Glasgow will be expecting the council to take serious and timeous action”.
