Green Deal for Britain

October 3, 2010 9:00 AM

Liberal Democrat policies on making Britain greener have been adopted by the Coalition Government. Deputy Prime Minister and Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg launched the "Green Deal" in August.

The plans will see up to 14 million households benefiting from better home insulation, saving a home that is currently poorly insulated up to £550 a year on lower energy bills.

"The Green Deal is a direct result of Liberal Democrat calls for green policies to form a key part of the Coalition agreement said Liberal Democrat Councillor Robin Lawrence.

Robin added "The Green Deal will have four key benefits. Firstly households will have cheaper heating bills. Secondly but there will be less pollution. Thirdly, the work needed to insulate people's homes will create jobs. Finally, people's homes will be warmer in the winter. People on low incomes, especially the elderly, will no longer be faced with deciding on a tight budget whether to be warm and hungry, or cold and fed."
