Green Deal delays, dog walkers and Christmas loans

Duration:
55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 06 December 2012

The government's latest energy-saving scheme launched in October, but so far, no homes or businesses have had an assessment under the Green Deal. You and Yours has found out why.

Also, shadow climate change Minister Luciana Berger discusses the Green Deal.

How many dogs can you walk at once? We go out with a professional dog walker, as more councils introduce restrictions on the way dogs can be exercised in public areas.

The British Diatetic Association has named its five worst celebrity diets to avoid in 2013. We asked Anne Diamond about some of the diets she'd rather forget.

Plus, a You and Yours listener picked us up on the pronunciation of 'H' and Michael Portillo explained why train beats plane for the sociable traveller.

And Moneybox's Paul Lewis reacts to the story of the woman who took out seven Christmas loans.

Presenter: Winifred Robinson
Producer: Joel Moors.
