Ministers are calling on the government to protect homeowners after it was revealed that at least 800,000 homes have had faulty cavity wall insulation installed at their properties.
Following the government's announcement of a new energy efficiency scheme this month, MPs and campaigners have expressed their concerns about how property owners will be protected from suppliers who fail to meet required standards.
They have also called for registered installers with the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA) to be investigated after industry insiders told the BBC that at least 800,000 homes had been hit by faulty cavity wall insulation.
