That this House notes with dismay that the United Kingdom has a higher death toll from cold-related illnesses than any other nation and that a major factor is poorly insulated houses; and therefore calls for a reduction in VAT on insulation and energy efficiency equipment and a massive increase in the programme for upgrading the energy efficiency of homes occupied by those on low incomes.
