£250m efficiency bid to improve home insulation

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Tavish Scott said: "People all over Scotland are facing an impossible choice between heating their homes and providing their families with the basics they need. The plan we have launched today will help lift people out of fuel poverty, cut their heating bills and provide some help in tough times.

"Scotland and the UK have been at the forefront of international emission reduction efforts but it is clear that we can and must do more. Investing in home insulation will reduce Scotland’s carbon footprint, cut family heating bills and generate thousands of green jobs across the country.

"The Liberal Democrats will ensure that every Scot, regardless of their income or financial circumstances, can access all the advice and support they need to improve the energy efficiency of their home."
