Answer for Fuel Poverty

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am aware of the Association for the Conservation of Energy's new estimate of fuel poverty. Following the actions in my Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy I have successfully lobbied for the Government to recognise the true scale of fuel poverty in London under its new definition. I will continue to pursue the actions in my strategy to work to reduce fuel poverty in London.
