We have extended our successful Energy Company Obligation out to 2017 and have reformed the Green Deal with changes such as the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.

Together, ECO and the Green Deal have helped more than one million homes become more energy efficient, and as I have informed the House already, yesterday I laid regulations to require landlords to bring their properties up to a minimum level of energy efficiency from 1 April 2018.

If the House agrees these new, tough rules for the private rented sector, we estimate that around one million tenants will benefit from warmer and cheaper to heat homes.
