Jason was back in the House of Commons chamber today and asking the Business Secretary about home energy efficiency measures as part of the Government’s 10 Point Plan to drive Britain's Green Industrial Revolution.
Jason McCartney MP
There is a lot of older housing stock in my constituency and I therefore fully support the Government’s aims to make our homes warmer and greener. I appreciate that there are issues with the green homes grant scheme, but will the Secretary of State commit to boosting investment in energy efficiency measures in our homes, because that will not only be good for the planet and good for residents in helping to reduce bills, but create tens of thousands of quality green jobs?
Kwasi Kwarteng MP
I fully appreciate my hon. Friend’s points. He and I stood on a manifesto in 2019 that expressly committed us to spending £9.2 billion over 10 years on exactly the kinds of measures that he mentioned.
That is something that I am very focused on.
