Motion text

That this House welcomes the Green Paper, Building our Future: Laying the Foundations for Healthy Homes and Buildings: Draft Paper, produced by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Healthy Homes and Buildings which provides key insights into how safety, comfort and energy efficiency of homes can be improved; believes that successive governments' approaches to healthy homes and buildings have been disjointed and that a cross-departmental committee for health and buildings should be established; further believes that building design and delivery should be considered holistically with air quality and ventilation, lighting and acoustics considered throughout construction; believes that the construction sector needs to be upskilled in order to do this; and calls for better public awareness of the link between built environment and lifestyles and health and and wellbeing.
