I am sat in the DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) Select Committee.
We are taking evidence from Ed Miliband, the Secretary of State.
I am very excited about the answers he has just given me to my questions.
This will not interest most of you however, if you had to sit in front of elderly couples week after week who cannot afford to heat their homes adequately and if you wanted to bang your head against the wall in frustration with the sheer inefficiency and inadequacy of the Warm Front scheme you would understand my moment of pleasure.
Ed has just hinted very strongly in his answers to my questions that a) the Warm Front grant is about to be re-negotiated and may go up very shortly b) that the issues of who fits the hardware as in boilers and radiators and how much they charge is to be looked at and c) that there will be both policy and service provision improvements in place well before next winter.
I watch this space nervously and hope he can deliver on his word!
