Warm Front Scheme

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many Warm Front assessors have been contracted to the Warm Front scheme; how many assessments each assessor carried out on average in the latest period for which figures are available; and how many assessors his Department expects to remain under contract from 1 May 2010. (320263)

There are currently 164 assessors contracted to the Warm Front scheme.

185,103 surveys were completed between April 2009 and January 2010. The number of assessors contracted to the scheme has fluctuated over this period; it is not therefore possible to provide an accurate figure for the number of assessments each assessor has carried out over the period.

Eaga, the Warm Front scheme manager, is currently considering scheme activity for 2010-11. As part of this, eaga will consider the anticipated level of assessments to be carried out, which in turn will determine the number of assessors required for the year.
