Scottish Government Issued with a Final Demand to End Fuel Poverty

Today (30 November) the Scottish Government has been issued with a ‘final demand’ to end fuel poverty by the national fuel poverty charity Energy Action Scotland.

The letter sent to all MSPs as well as to Scottish Ministers is a reminder that it is exactly one year until the statutory duty to end fuel poverty must be met.  The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 states that the Scottish Government has ‘to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that people are not living in fuel poverty in Scotland by November 2016’.
