Last week, during the Opposition Day debate on Climate Change, I asked a question to Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Amber Rudd, relating to the Government's 'Green Deal'.

However, it has been substantially under-performing against its stated targets. My question was:

Below is a video of my question:
