Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers regularly speak to Islington Council in relation to fuel poverty alleviation and their award-winning SHINE programme. The GLA also hosted a London HECA forum workshop on 1 May with boroughs (including LB Islington), to examine different approaches to tackling fuel poverty in the capital.
