Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform for what reasons his Department has not published the number of households in England in fuel poverty since 2004; and when he expects to publish that information. (167506)

The Government will publish shortly its annual progress report on fuel poverty covering 2005 which will include statistics of households in fuel poverty in England in 2005. The publication has been delayed to allow the Government to provide an update on the activities outlined in the Energy White Paper 2007.
