June 30, 2011 10:08 AM

Responding to the report by WWF Cymru which shows that the Welsh Government is 'failing in key green aims' and missing targets in economic development, housing and transport, William Powell, Welsh Liberal Democrat AM for Mid & West Wales said:

William Powell portrait (Richard Thomas)"The Welsh Government has consistently congratulated itself on its sustainability record. But this report shows we are lagging behind.

"According to the Energy Savings Trust there are half a million homes in Wales which require loft insulation and a quarter of a million homes which need cavity wall insulation. The Welsh Liberal Democrats argue for much more focus on helping households save money and energy by radically increasing our investment in energy efficiency.

"In addition, the government must use its new law making powers to introduce a Bill to improve public transport and re-regulate the buses."
