Brown tackles energy bills, unemployment

Brown tackles energy bills, unemployment
A plan to combat carbon emissions, unemployment and rising energy bills has been announced by prime minister Gordon Brown.

Thousands of people are to receive training to become loft insulation installers and draught-proofers as part of an initiative to combine the aims of making homes more energy efficient and create jobs.

Mr Brown, who was in Brussels explaining the rescue package for banks to other EU leaders, said the plan would help Britons deal with energy price rises.

"We are expanding in a very radical way our insulation and draught-proofing central-heating provision for the elderly and other people in our country," he said, the Guardian reported.

"So I just give you one example of how we can combine to meet the challenges of climate change and cut people's gas and electricity bills and create the opportunities for work and training for that work."

According to the National Insulation Association, nine million homes have unfilled cavity walls and 15 million need more loft insulation.
