To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what discussions he had with the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions on determining the proportion of total resources for tackling fuel poverty and cold homes which were allocated to Scotland. 
§ Mr. Wilson
Discussions on the allocation of resources to Scotland for the years 1999/2000 to 2001/02 began under my right hon. Friend's predecessor. They were concluded after 1 July 1999, when responsibility for the subject had passed to the Scottish Executive.
