Government has dithered on greening our homes - Hughes

March 2, 2010 12:38 PM

Commenting on the Government's announcement of a green loans scheme for households who want to make energy efficient improvements to their homes, Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Simon Hughes said:

"It is staggering that it has taken this Government nearly 13 years to come up with plans to green our homes and cut people's fuels bills.

"Refurbishing our homes should be a win-win situation, but Labour has bungled this kind of thing before.

"Today's announcement will leave millions of families without the warm homes they need for up to 20 years.

"We urgently need a nationwide scheme to make every home a warm home."
