Quotes

"We’ll target the worst properties first, where people in the most extreme cases face paying over £1,500 more than they need to. We’ll work with partners – including GPs and others working in in healthcare – to make sure the right help gets to those who need it the most."
Jenny Banks, energy and climate specialist at WWF-UK, said: "Our political leaders are justifiably proud of their record on supporting tackling climate change on the global stage. But they must make sure they're not saying one thing and doing another."
