To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many (a) local authority and (b) housing association homes in City of York constituency have had energy efficiency improvements in each of the last five years; and what the average cost per dwelling to the public purse of those improvements was.
The Government have set the Decent Homes Standard, whereby social landlords are challenged to make homes warm and weather proof, with modern facilities. The following table shows the number of local authority homes in the City of York that have had energy efficiency improvements in the last five years and the total cost of these improvements.

It is not possible to derive average costs per dwelling since not all dwellings will have had all three elements of works carried out. The Government do not collect data about housing association expenditure.
