Response to Scottish Fuel Poverty Statement
Friends of the Earth Scotland and the Association for the Conservation of Energy welcome the opportunity to comment on the consultative draft of the Scottish Fuel Poverty Statement. On the whole, the proposals within this Scottish Fuel Poverty Statement are very welcome. It should be particularly commended for introducing 2016 as the target date for the eradication of fuel poverty in Scotland and proposing a front loaded target. There are, however, a number of specific comments which need to be raised and issues which need to be acted upon.
