This Government made a clear Manifesto commitment to tackle fuel poverty by committing to upgrading all fuel poor homes to EPC Band C by 2030.

We are making progress in particular by tackling the most energy inefficient homes. Since 2010 there are almost 800,000 fewer fuel poor households living in homes rated E, F or G.

The average fuel poverty gap has also dropped 6 per cent in real terms since 2010 and last year I refocused the whole of the £630m ECO annual budget on tackling fuel poverty without the help of her party I might add who voted against the measures.
