There are 26.5 million homes in the UK and 21 million minutes to go. So his assumption seems to be that even houses built in recent years will need refurbishment. That is a striking condemnation of the Building Regs and Code for Sustainable Homes implementation that we have had in place for the past few years.
The sooner all new build is required to be low energy the better.
But this government (same as the old one) seem unwilling to risk the wrath of the building industry to enforce this 'no-brainer' by requiring sensible levels of insulation.
