MPs call for new and improved Green Homes Grant scheme
23 April 2021
A cross-party group of MPs making up the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) has called for the Green Homes Grant to be replaced with a new and improved multi-year energy efficiency scheme in the upcoming Spending Review, in a letter to the Business Secretary.
The Green Homes Grant was a good initiative but was poorly implemented. This government has shown its willingness to be an environmental world leader, but I fear its green credentials risk being undermined by poor policy decisions. Actions speak louder than words, and simply abandoning a critically important decarbonisation scheme when cracks appeared sets a poor example in the year we aim to show climate leadership.Philip Dunne, Chair of the EAC
