Numbers up again for households in "fuel poverty" - i.e. spending more than 10% of household income on fuel. Government minister on the radio is saying that Green Deal is going to make homes more energy efficient. It will not be a panacea or a replacement for the Warm Front grant scheme. It is a going to be a kind of "low cost loan" for energy efficiency measures, but they don't want to call it that.
Meanwhile someone like me, over 60, with a younger husband earning a good income and living in an energy efficient house, will get a winter fuel payment of £200!
Do we agree with the winter fuel payment or should the money be spent in a different way? Anyone tried to get a Warm Front grant lately? Anyone got a social landlord who is doing something to help?
