The Government needs to make fuel efficiency programmes more widely available if it is to tackle fuel poverty, according to experts.
National Energy Action (NEA) chief executive Jenny Saunders called on the Coalition to "invest in old and cold housing":
4.5 million UK households are living in fuel poverty - on low incomes and with unaffordable energy bills.
The only sustainable way to tackle this problem is to invest in our old and cold housing stock.
In England, only £3.52 in Government funding is available per domestic electricity consumer to improve domestic energy efficiency compared to an average spend of £31.78 in the other nations.
Additional resources must be made available to improve the heating and insulation of our poorest households.
