Motion text

That this House commends the Government's commitment to the eradication of fuel poverty in social housing by 2010 and understands the case for replacing the expenditure-based definition of affordable warmth with the requirement that a dwelling should have efficient heating and effective insulation; considers that the proposed thermal comfort standards, set well below those specified in current building regulations, are totally inadequate for this purpose and will result in extensive hidden fuel poverty; and calls upon the Government to re-examine the energy efficiency criteria of the decency standard with a view to setting an energy rating target that will ensure warmth and comfort for tenants occupying dwellings in this sector.
