We face mass destitution thanks to the rocketing price of energy. Lib Dems want the government to use a windfall tax on energy companies to help households keep the heating on. But Westminster Council could do more too. I’ve written to Adam Hug, the Labour council leader, asking him to relax rules on energy-efficient windows in conservation areas. People clobbered by the cost-of-living crisis can’t afford to pay top-whack for hardwood sash windows. We face a climate emergency too β€” it’s time to put first things first and get cost-effective insulation in now, before winter bites.
