Laying The Foundations For Healthy Homes And Buildings

EDM number 1805 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 05/11/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Housing standards.

That this House welcomes the launch of Building our Future Laying the Foundations for Healthy Homes and Building White Paper produced by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Healthy Homes and Buildings and notes the weight of evidence received and recommendations made, which make clear that healthier homes and buildings would contribute to better educational attainment, higher workplace productivity, reduced emissions, lower energy bills and a lower carbon footprint as well as improved health and independent living resulting in fewer excess winter deaths and lower costs to the NHS; and urges the Government to support its three overarching recommendations to establish a cross departmental committee to deliver change and improvement to our homes and buildings, to take action on standards for new homes to maximise health and wellbeing and to make renovation of existing housing stock a national infrastructure priority.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
