Cochrane says Green New Deal vital to boost economy and create jobs

Alliance Finance Spokesperson Judith Cochrane MLA has said that radical and bold steps need to be taken to boost the economy and said that the creation of a Green New Deal is vital to create jobs and help us reach our potential as regards sustainability.

Judith Cochrane MLA said: “We need to be radical in our efforts to grow the economy and create jobs, and I believe creating a Green New Deal would be extremely beneficial.

“Government should be looking to deliver a Green New Deal to help us realise the potential that this sector presents and that our natural resources give us. The creation of further home insulation schemes as part of this type of strategy would help keep household bills as low as possible whilst also boosting our construction sector by providing work fitting insulation in homes.

“We also have massive potential regarding renewable energy and this sector could be very lucrative for us if a Green New Deal is put in place.”
