Volume 453: debated on Tuesday 28 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) whether her Department is taking steps to ensure that vulnerable groups are made aware of the assistance available to them through the home heat helpline; (104528)

(2) whether her Department is providing funding for the home heat helpline.

The Department, the Department for Work and Pensions, Age Concern, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Help the Aged, WRVS and National Energy Action publishes a booklet “Keep Warm, Keep Well”. It gives practical advice, plus contact details for a number of other organisations including the Home Heat Helpline. NHS Direct also provides advice.

The Home Heat Helpline is an initiative of the Energy Retail Association.
