BRIEF – 29 October 2009 – The Senate Environment Committee inquiry into insulation for homes and businesses will now be expanded from malpractice in the industry to the potential for job creation, money saving and environmental benefits.

“I am delighted that the possibility of expanding the insulation scheme to cover walls, floors,
windows and small businesses will now be examined,” Australian Greens Deputy Leader,
