VAT For Warm Homes Campaign

EDM number 905 in 2007-08, proposed by Robert Smith on 06/02/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Energy, Incomes and poverty and Utilities.

That this House notes that Scottish Power has announced average price increases for its electricity customers of 14 per cent. and for its gas customers of 15 per cent.; further notes that this decision follows similar above-inflation price increases by Npower, EDF Energy and British Gas; recognises that in light of such increases more must be done to make homes as energy efficient as possible to address rising fuel poverty in the UK; welcomes Energy Action Scotland's `VAT for Warm Homes' campaign and its recommendation that the Treasury uses the estimated £175 million of additional VAT raised through energy price increases to give extra funding for Government programmes that provide insulation and efficient central heating systems to vulnerable households; and calls on the Government to support this campaign.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
