Home insulation plan in Wales

Home insulation plan in Wales
The Welsh Conservatives have put forward a new scheme to reduce carbon emissions in households through improved insulation.

A £120 million investment is being planned by the political party, which would be used for loft and cavity wall insulation.

It will take four years for the programme to be implemented if it goes ahead, with work being pencilled in to start after the next assembly government election in 2011.

Around 2,500 jobs could also be created through the initiative, which would be part of a wider environmental policy from the Welsh Conservatives focusing upon energy efficiency.

Angela Burns, the shadow environment minister, said: "We believe government can do so much more in cutting carbon emissions, tackling unemployment and reducing fuel poverty.

"Our proposals show we are taking the issues of fuel poverty, unemployment and climate change seriously and are prepared to work with others to combat all three."

Friends of the Earth Cymru told WalesOnline that improving the efficiency of the Welsh housing sector could have a significant impact, as it currently accounts for more than a quarter of the country's emissions.
