A GREENPEACE vessel had a new crew member at its launch last week.
Andrew Pakes, Labour’s Parliamentary Spokesperson for Milton Keynes, joined the crew of the Rainbow Warrior III as it docked in London last week as part of its maiden voyage.
Andrew said: “Environmental issues have always been at the heart of Milton Keynes from the Parks Trust through to the first-ever doorstep recycling scheme in England.
“Growing up here, I have always taken a strong interest in how we look after the land around us.
“It was great pleasure to visit the new Rainbow Warrior on its maiden voyage and to see at first-hand how we can create new jobs from green technology.
“The future of our local economy has got to be about boosting green jobs and creating lasting growth.”
