Warm Front Scheme
Energy and Climate Change
Stephen McCabe (Birmingham, Selly Oak, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether his Department recommends that contractors use a particular type of cavity wall insulation when undertaking work under the Warm Front scheme.
Gregory Barker (The Minister of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change; Bexhill and Battle, Conservative)
The Warm Front scheme does not recommend any particular type of cavity wall insulation. The choice of cavity wall insulation method and material is for installers based on their assessment of needs in specific dwellings. Under the scheme, all cavity wall installations must be carried out in accordance with the standards set under the British Board of Agreement or the BSI Licence.
