Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, commenting on the open letter sent to Ed Davey, warning of 16,000 job losses in the insulation industry, said:

"Time and time again we are seeing job losses and missed opportunities because of incompetence in this Tory-led Government. The Government’s shambolic cuts to solar power cost thousands of jobs and now a further 16,000 jobs in the insulation industry are at risk.

"The transformation of our economy and a new energy industrial revolution are a huge opportunity, with the potential to create 400,000 jobs and support growth, when we need them more than ever. We need a One Nation government which will seize the opportunity to create jobs and growth across Britain, but instead with this Tory-led Government and their Lib Dem allies, Britain risks falling even further behind, sending jobs, growth and industries that should be coming to this country overseas."
