Lib Dems call for massive investment in home insulation
Islington’s Liberal Democrat councillors and campaigners are calling on local Labour MP Emily Thornberry to support a national campaign to raise £500 million from energy companies to fund a massive programme of home insulation.
Bridget Fox, the Liberal Democrat shadow MP for Islington South & Finsbury added:
“I’m backing the Council’s campaign to get a fairer deal for energy customers. Many Islington households are already paying over the odds for heating, while energy companies have benefited from a huge £9bn windfall, yet the Government does nothing to help: it’s desperately unfair.
“We need action from the Government now so that local residents don’t suffer more when winter comes.”
