In December I launched a new scheme with the Southampton City Council and the energy company E-ON to provide free insulation for all private rented homes in the city. The £1.8 million scheme will help insulate over 3,000 homes.
This is a huge investment that will make a real difference to thousands of residents, many of whom are vulnerable people struggling to heat their homes.
By insulating homes for free we will ensure that fuels bills are cut. As well as keeping people warm, it is great news for the environment.
