I think that Robin Harper would take this position as well: the Scottish National party welcomes the warm deal. The issue is this: do we acknowledge that the problem with the warm deal is basically one of insulation? It is not just about tackling dampness. There is no provision, for example, to have central heating systems that would really start to tackle fuel poverty in the way that we want. Will the minister please acknowledge that this is a problem, and review the operations? We are not getting what we could out of the warm deal.
