The British government's previous decision to build a new coal mine has been postponed due to the political turmoil.
Since July 5, dozens of British government officials, including several ministers, have resigned, while British Prime Minister Johnson said on July 7 that he would resign as head of the ruling Conservative Party and as prime minister.
The British government has considered the feasibility of a new coal mine in Cumbria in northwest England since late April, the first time in 30 years that the country has expressed support for a new coal mine plan.
According to the original plan, the decision on whether to build the new coking coal mine will be announced on July 7.
The U.K. aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, after the government's Independent Commission on Climate Change warned that allowing coal mining would make it more difficult to meet climate targets.
