To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme, how long on average his Department took to process applications to that scheme received from homeowners in the Sefton Central constituency, from the time the application was submitted to the time the homeowner received vouchers.
Based on the report by the National Audit Office published on 1 December 2021, ‘It took 138 days on average to issue a voucher to those homeowners who applied in September 2020, but the time taken to issue vouchers reduced over time reaching 50 days in March 2021’. The information requested by constituency is not available.
The Government designed the voucher application process to automate checks where possible. All valid applications made up until the deadline were processed.
