Warm Front Scheme

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (1) what recent discussions he has had with ministerial colleagues on the implementation of the Warm Front scheme in the North West; (297947)

(2) what recent discussions he has had with Ministerial colleagues on the length of time it takes for Warm Front grant applications to be processed.

I have regular discussions with ministerial colleagues, officials and a range of stakeholders about action to tackle fuel poverty, including discussions about the implementation and performance of the Warm Front scheme across England.

On 29 October, I chaired an inter-ministerial group on fuel poverty during which the Warm Front Scheme and its delivery was discussed.
