The Liberal Democrats in government have announced a "Green Deal", which could support up to 250,000 jobs by 2030. Said Lib Dem Minister Chris Huhne, "The Green Deal will be a revolution. The first scheme of its kind in the developed world. The most ambitious energy-saving plan ever put forward. A once-and-for-all refit that will make every home in Britain ready for a low-carbon future."

In his speech to Liberal Democrat Autumn Conference on Tuesday, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Chris Huhne said the Government's Green Deal will radically overhaul the energy efficiency of homes and small businesses.
