The PM told The Sun he wanted to double down on rolling out green measures – with extra double glazing and loft or cavity wall protections to help homes keep expensive heat.
He said: “People are rightly anxious about bills – if we can go and embark on a programme of improving energy efficiency of people’s homes, which we started in government, it cuts peoples bills by hundreds of pounds and it helps us meet our climate objectives.
“Those things have a real benefit at home which we shouldn’t lose sight of.”
And he vowed: “We need to make sure that money we are spending is getting to the people who we want it to help, we want to make sure people who will really benefit from those upgrades, get them, and we deliver it properly, that’s what I want to make sure that we do.”
The hint came as he made his debut on the world stage with a whistle-stop diplomacy blitz at COP27 in Glasgow.
He insisted he would pick up BoJo’s mantle for green and continue to show “leadership” on the world stage by urging others to go eco too in a bid to protect the planet for our kids.
