There was more evidence last week that ordinary families are paying the price of this Government's failure as 'Warm Front', its programme for household energy efficiency support, is closed down before even half the budget is spent.
The scheme to date has been mired in chaos with thousands turned down for help, more left waiting to hear whether they qualify, as well as a massive backlog.
A debate in the House of Commons last week revealed a Government that is both incompetent and unfair expecting ordinary families and the environment to pay because of their failure to get a grip.
At a time when millions of families face a cost of living crisis, with energy bills soaring - up by nearly £300 since 2010 - the Government needs to step in and find ways of helping people cut their energy bills and the most sustainable way to do that is through energy efficiency.
