To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how much the Government spent on energy conservation in (a) York and (b) Yorkshire in each year since 2004-05. (151561)

Energy conservation is a broad term that could refer to many activities implemented by a wide number of Government institutions. As such, it is not possible to accurately estimate total Government spend in these regions.

DEFRA’s main programme for improving the energy efficiency of vulnerable households is the Warm Front Scheme, which provides grants for heating and insulation measures. Warm Front spend on measures in York and Yorkshire is set out in the following table:
