Miliband: 'I wanted a stronger agreement' in Copenhagen


The Climate Secretary Ed Miliband has said that he "wanted a stronger agreement" than the one which is currently being finalised at the Copenhagen climate summit.

Interviewed by John Humphrys on the Today programme, Mr Miliband said that the summit is still trying to reach a consensus and has been "tied down in process questions" for the last four to five hours.

Delegates were discussing proposals which would limit the rise in global temperature to between two and three degrees and provide $100bn a year to developing countries.

Mr Miliband added that he wanted "a more comprehensive and legally-binding" agreement but that Copenhagen represented "a start".
