To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of whether there will be an increase in the number of people who will be ineligible to receive the discount on energy through the Warm Home Discount Scheme as more people are choosing to move from large to small energy suppliers.

Energy suppliers that are obligated to participate in the Warm Home Discount scheme cover 94% of the market for domestic customers. Our evaluation suggests that intentions to switch energy suppliers are generally low among rebate recipients. We have recently completed a consultation on the next phase of Warm Home Discount, including the obligation thresholds, and are currently reviewing the responses.
