To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the recommendations of the National Audit Office report entitled Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme published on 8 September 2021, whether the Government has made an assessment of the potential merits of replacing the Green Homes Grant with another long-term retrofit scheme.

In order to ensure the Government continues to deliver its net zero ambitions and support a thriving building retrofit industry, the Government will be expanding its funding commitment for both the Homes Upgrade Grant scheme and the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund with up to £950 million and £800 million in additional funding respectively over 2022/23 to 2024/25. This takes total funding to over £6.4billion across the lifetime of this Parliament. The Government has also introduced a new Boiler Upgrade Scheme worth £450 million, which will provide capital grants towards the cost of a heat pump.
