Has anything been done about the 10-10 campaign

At September's Council meeting I proposed that the council should join the 10-10 campaign to cut CO2 emissions by 10% by the end of next year.

The administration voted this down saying that they needed to look further at the issues before they could sign up.

So today I asked Julian German, the Cabinet Member for the Environment, to tell me what action he had taken since the last meeting to find out more about the 10-10 campaign.

He couldn't provide me with any details at all and invited me to look at his online diary to find out what he has done. I've done so and there doesn't appear to be anything that fits the bill. To be fair to him, it may have been tucked away in another meeting and so I've written to him to ask for details of the meetings he has held on the subject and reports he has commissioned.

My concern is that, despite his promise, he has done nothing. I very much hope that he is able to prove me wrong.
