HC Deb 27 June 1996 vol 280 c216W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what account he took of the unit costs for(a) cavity wall insulation and (b) heating system upgrade as set out in the home energy efficiency scheme proposals for change when setting the current HEES budget; and if he will make a statement. [34242]

Mr. Clappison

The two measures mentioned by the hon. Member are not presently provided under the home energy efficiency scheme. Their costs were not, therefore, relevant factors in determining the current level of funding. The Government are consulting on possible alterations to HEES, and will consider whether any changes are desirable in the light of that consultation.
