Motion text

That this House recognises that energy bills are causing immense financial hardship, with one in four households struggling to heat their homes; believes that cold, badly insulated homes damage the health of the most vulnerable, including older people, children and people with disabilities, costing the NHS almost a billion pounds a year; further believes homes can be made warm and cheaper to heat with high quality insulation and energy efficiency measures; further believes that this is a cost-effective, fair and permanent way to reduce fuel bills and tackle fuel poverty and will generate many thousands of jobs and cut carbon emissions; and calls on the Government to use revenues raised from the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme and the Carbon Floor Price to provide additional resources for policies to deliver energy efficiency in homes, especially those housing the fuel poor.
