LABOUR has vowed to borrow billions to insulate every home in Britain in a decade — to the delight of hardcore eco activists.

Sir Keir Starmer said it would cut energy bills by £400, help save the planet and create 200,000 jobs.

Insulate Britain which has caused havoc blocking major roads backed the move

Insulate Britain, which has caused havoc for weeks by blocking major roads — including one near the M25 yesterday — backed the move.

One female protester, who glued herself to the road, said: “That’s excellent news. Let’s get the Labour Party in.”

Under Labour’s plan, homeowners would get grants and interest-free loans to pay for measures such as double glazing and improved heating.

Sir Keir said: “If we are serious about climate change, we will need to upgrade our homes.

“Now we have a crisis in energy prices, emissions from homes have increased and we have the least energy-efficient housing in Europe.

“So it will be Labour’s national mission to fit out every home that needs it to make sure it is warm, well-insulated and costs less to heat.”

A recent poll found 65 per cent back a national retrofitting taskforce, with seven per cent opposed.
