To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, with reference to the contribution of 3 February 2015 from the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in his Department, Official Report, column 22WH, on cavity wall insulation, what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of the proposal to introduce independent oversight for all cavity wall insulation guarantees.

Holding answer received on 09 March 2015

I have instructed DECC officials to gather further evidence to better understand the need for an independent oversight body for Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) guarantees.

I met with Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA) on 24 February to discuss this issue further, and they have committed to preparing a paper regarding this proposal.

I have also written to the Chief Executive of Ofgem, regarding this issue on 9 February. DECC officials are currently reviewing the response.
