I welcome the news that charities and consumer groups in Wales have combined to fight fuel poverty.

It is estimated that one in four Welsh households, some 320,000 homes, experience fuel poverty, meaning they have to spend 10% or more of their income on heating.

One of the ways we can tackle this problem is by greater energy efficiency.

I recently unveiled our plans to cut carbon emissions, combat fuel poverty and create hundreds of “green” jobs by fitting loft and cavity wall insulation to homes across Wales.

It is estimated there are currently 250,000 homes in Wales with unfilled cavity walls and a further 3,000 with completely un-insulated lofts.

By acting locally we can make a difference globally when it comes to climate change.
