Answered By: 
The Mayor

I very much support the aims of the Cold Homes Week campaign.  My annual Know Your Rights campaign works closely with Age UK, which supports Cold Homes Week, to help raise awareness with older people to maximise their incomes by claiming benefits that can help reduce their energy bills.  My RE:NEW programme continues to retrofit homes across London to make them more energy efficient.
