Summary of our CSR representation
On the 21st July, the Chancellor launched the 2020 Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR). The Review, which will be published in the autumn, will be critical to help accelerate efforts to end cold homes during this parliament. Within this submission, NEA outlines its key priorities and vital opportunities to create warmer and healthier homes, help stimulate the economy, reduce poor air quality and reduce carbon emissions. We call for the UK Government to continue welcome central investment to meet our statutory fuel poverty targets in England, to spread this investment across the other UK nations, to meet the commitments that were first made three years ago within the Clean Growth Strategy and the Conservative Party manifesto and 2019 Queen’s Speech. We also highlight how other positive outcomes could be achieved without increasing energy prices for other consumers and adjusting existing tax-funded support.
