Since the answer given by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State on 1 May 2019 to Question 246545, there have been four Sanction Notices issued (final decisions) in respect of complaints about mis-selling of the Green Deal by HELMS but no further Intention Notices. We expect to issue a number of Intention Notices in response to such appeals shortly.

The final decisions in Sanction Notices may be subject to appeal to the First tier Tribunal.
