Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is backing an Early Day Motion (EDM) that calls on the Government to embrace the Energy Efficiency and Reduction in Energy Costs Bill.
EDM 841 (Energy Efficiency and Reduction of Energy Costs Bill) has received cross-party support and highlights MPs’ concerns with rising energy prices and calls on Ministers to engage with the building industry over possible new building regulations. The Energy Efficiency and Reduction in Energy Costs Bill is a Private Members Bill.
Commenting, Mike said: “No one likes to see their bills go up and I know that many residents in my constituency struggle to meet rising energy costs. Given that energy prices are unlikely to substantially go down in the near future, it is important to address other areas that can help reduce our future dependence on energy.”
