It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship for the first time, Ms Dorries.

I am pleased to have secured this debate on an issue that is affecting literally thousands of my constituents and, I know, many more thousands of people in constituencies up and down the country. The debate is timely because last week the Government finally published their consultation document on the future of the energy company obligation.

I do not intend to focus on the Government’s impact assessment, because I want to speak about the effect that changes to the energy company obligation are having on my constituents in Nottingham South right now—constituents such as Ilona, one of the people in fuel poverty that the energy company obligation was designed to help.
