HC Deb 03 December 1990 vol 182 c3W
Mr. David Porter

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what steps the Government are taking to improve the energy efficiency of pensioner and low-income households.

Mr. Wakeham

The new home energy efficiency scheme, which will come into operation on 1 January 1991 is aimed specifically at low-income households. Its primary purpose is to increase the take-up of basic energy efficiency measures and to provide advice on ways in which those on low incomes can use energy more efficiently.
