HC Deb 10 May 1999 vol 331 c12W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he expects to publish the Government's fuel poverty policy proposals. [83906]

Mr. Meale

The Government intend to publish their proposals for the way ahead on fuel poverty tomorrow. They follow an extensive inter-departmental review of all current policies and programmes, including discussions with over 60 organisations with an interest in this area. Fuel poverty is an important issue which affects all too many households and which we are determined to address. The proposals will be subject to a two month consultation period, during which we shall actively seek views from interested parties. Copies of the consultation paper will be available tomorrow morning in the Library of the House and the Vote Office.
