Political parties should commit to ridding Scotland of the ‘scourge’ of cold homes by 2025, said campaigners today. The call by the Existing Homes Alliance Scotland, whose members include WWF Scotland, Changeworks, and the National Insulation Association, follows the publication of newly compiled data which revealed that there are up to 1.5million cold homes in the country – with tens of thousands in every single parliamentary constituency. Commenting on the new figures, Alan Ferguson, Chair of the Existing Homes Alliance said: “These figures show that if the next Scottish Government set an objective to bring all homes in Scotland to at least a ‘C’ energy performance standard by 2025, they could end the scourge of cold homes currently affecting thousands of households in every single parliamentary constituency across Scotland.
