To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many (a) core group and (b) broader group households receiving rebates from the Warm Home Discount scheme are also beneficiaries of discounted tariffs or legacy rebates as part of the legacy spending transitional arrangements of the voluntary agreement post March 2011.

The energy suppliers participating in the Warm Home Discount scheme are not required to provide data on the number of customers who benefit both from core or broader group rebates and from legacy spending. Legacy spending in year one of the scheme was £102.9 million. This is due to fall in each year of the scheme with no legacy spending being permitted in year four. The fall in legacy spending will be offset by a rise in core group spending which provides more certain, more uniform and better targeted support to customers in or at risk of fuel poverty.
