Warm Home Discount Scheme
Energy and Climate Change
Caroline Flint (Don Valley, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change pursuant to the answer of 16 April 2012, Official Report, column 173W, on the warm home discount scheme, when he expects Ofgem to conduct a review of suppliers' spending under the scheme for 2011-12.
Gregory Barker (Minister of State (Climate Change), Energy and Climate Change; Bexhill and Battle, Conservative)
The Warm Home Discount Regulations 2011 require Ofgem to determine suppliers' spending in each scheme year as soon as reasonably practicable after the end of the scheme year. Therefore we expect Ofgem will undertake a review of suppliers' spending in year one of the scheme over the coming months.
