Political Anger at Fuel Poverty Figures

Housing Minister Margaret Burgess has said the latest fuel poverty figures in the Scottish House Condition Survey are ‘scandalous’. Since 2002 as incomes have dropped and fuel prices have risen, fuel poverty has increased and it is now estimated that 39.1% of households are in fuel poverty. A household is deemed to be in fuel poverty if they spend more than 10% of their household income on energy to heat their home adequately. A Fuel Poverty Statement is due from the Scottish Government by the end of the year which will state how they are going to meet their duty set out in the Housing Act of eradicating  fuel poverty as far as reasonable practicable by November 2016.
