Boilers: Government Assistance

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what timetable has been established for the implementation of the boiler scrappage scheme; what homes will be eligible; and whether local authorities are required to participate in the scheme. (311548)

The Boiler Scrappage Scheme was launched for applications on 5 January, with the first vouchers being distributed from the week commencing 18 January. The scheme is open to householders, private landlords or their tenants in England who seek to replace a working G rated or worse boiler with an A rated boiler or a renewable heating technology. Full eligibility criteria can be found on:

Local authorities are not required to participate in the scheme. The scheme is due to run until the sum of money allocated to the scheme (£50 million) is spent.
