§ 25. Mr. Sayeed
asked the Secretary of State for Energy what action his Department has taken to realise savings in energy costs through cavity insulation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. David Hunt
The energy efficiency office is actively promoting cavity wall insulation as a highly cost effective energy saving measure. My right hon. Friend launched wall insulation month in September during Energy Efficiency Year with the National Cavity Insulation Association. Cavity wall insulation featured in one of the energy efficiency office's television advertisements and one of the press advertisements. A special leaflet for householders has also been produced by the energy efficiency office in consultation with the NCIA. The office has also had several meetings with the NCIA in the past year as a result of which a number of initiatives to improve the industry's consumer protection plan are under consideration.
