Unpacking Environmentalism

What do people believe should be the priority for government action on the environment, and how should the Conservatives address these challenges?


Polling has shown that the environment is one of the issues that voters care about most, particularly younger voters. What is less well understood is what people think about when talking about the environment. A wide range of issues from deforestation and soil erosion to meat consumption and animal rights have all been described as environmental issues. In order to address environmental concerns, we must put the environmental debate in context and understand people's priorities and concerns.

Investing in Rural Britain

What should be the spending priorities for rural areas outside the EU, and how should a new system of support be structured?


Every pound that goes into rural development outside the EU will be in competition with the NHS, Defence and all other budgets, and will need to demonstrate value for money. The Government is committed to establishing a new system of regional and rural support as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, with a budget to be agreed in the Spending Review. This will replace the EU development schemes which supported broadband infrastructure, tourism projects, and business productivity.
