On Friday, March 24, a group led by Worcester Greenpeace, met with the Worcester MP at The Guildhall in Worcester, to discuss the national Warm This Winter campaign.

The group discussed topics such the cost-of-living crisis, home insulation and school funding surrounding heating and free school meals.

John Allen, volunteer for Worcester Greenpeace, said: ‘We are really pleased that at the meeting, Robin Walker MP pledged to call for the expansion of Government-funded home insulation schemes, heat pump installation, more investment in renewable energy, and further support for vulnerable households with their energy bills.

"We look forward to hearing from him soon about how they’re pushing for the Energy Bill to work for the constituents of Worcester and make our homes warmer and bills cheaper."

Robin Walker MP said he was "happy to sign the general pledge" but there was one major topic raised which he did not agree with.

He said: "I was happy to sign the general pledge as there was a number of things, I was already rallying for in parliament such as pressing the government on more green energy usage.

"I also agreed with supporting a big programme for insulation, which is one of the reasons I backed Rishi Sunak to become Prime Minister.

"The one element I did not agree with was an end using our domestic supply of gas, as we will still need to use it whilst transitioning to using greener energy.

“If we stopped using it, we would have to rely on other countries resources which is not better or greener."

This event was one of more than 80 taking place across the UK this spring in support of the Warm This Winter campaign.

Warm This Winter is a new campaign from a coalition of over 40 UK charities, that is demanding the government acts now to help people struggling with energy bills this winter, and to ensure there is access to affordable energy in the future.
