HIPs extension another stumbling step in a flawed scheme - Stunell 17 August 2007
Commenting on today’s announcement that Home Information Packs (HIPs) will be extended to include all three-bedroom properties put up for sale from 10th September, Liberal Democrat Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, Andrew Stunell MP said:
“This is just another stumbling step in implementing a flawed scheme.
"We still haven’t seen the results of the pilot scheme and yet Yvette Cooper is blundering on with her eyes closed.
“This is no way to ensure that the country’s homes cut their carbon footprint.
“It is time for a completely fresh look at tackling climate change.”
