Volume 482: debated on Wednesday 5 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what estimate he has made of the number of households in Pembrokeshire in fuel poverty. (229260)

The responsibility for estimating fuel poverty in Wales lies with the Welsh Assembly Government.

The most recent geographical split of fuel poverty information in Wales comes from the Living in Wales survey, 2004. This shows that in 2004, there were around 42,000 fuel poor households in mid-Wales, the region that contains Pembrokeshire. Information on fuel poverty at a local authority level for Wales is not currently available.
