Thangam Debbonaire responds to the Government’s Future Homes Standard announcement

Thangam Debbonaire MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the Government’s Future Homes Standard announcement, said:

“This is a real disappointment, given the Conservatives had suggested they would be accelerating the Future Homes Standard.

“The Government is already seriously behind on our climate targets. Cancelling Labour’s Zero Carbon Homes policy in 2015 wasted years of progress.

“To rebuild our country from Covid, we should be building homes now that are affordable to heat and durable for the future. This announcement sets out four more years of delay, which isn’t good for families, builders or the environment.”
