To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if he will make a statement on the levels of household fuel poverty in Uzbekistan. 
Mr. Gareth Thomas
DFID has not made an assessment of the levels of household fuel poverty in Uzbekistan. The World Bank is currently undertaking a survey of the Energy Policy Sector that will link poverty and access to fuel by households in Uzbekistan. The results of the study will be available later this year and can be accessed through the World Bank website (www.worldbank.org).
