Mr. Ingram: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform pursuant to the answer of 27 March 2008, Official Report, column 334W, on renewable energy: finance, whether his Department has received any transfer of funds from the fossil fuel levy since 2004; and if he will make a statement. 
Malcolm Wicks [holding answer 21 April 2008]: The Department has not received any transfer of funds from the Fossil Fuel Levy, or the Fossil Fuel Levy account other than that referred to in my previous answer.
Mark Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what assessment he has made of the effects of the cost of (a) heating oil and (b) other fuels on levels of fuel poverty; and if he will make a statement. 
Malcolm Wicks: Fuel poverty is caused by the interaction of a number of factors with the energy efficiency status of the property, the cost of energy and the household income are three of the most prominent. The impact of these three factors are shown within The UK Fuel Poverty Strategy; 5th Annual Progress Report 2007 (available online at http://www.berr.gov.uk/files/file42720.pdf).
Official fuel poverty figures take into account these factors including the cost of the main heating fuel, the type of heating system and the occupancy of the household. Comparison of the costs to heat a property used in the modelling of fuel poverty are sourced from the Sutherland Comparative Domestic Heating Cost tables, available under copyright through http://www.sutherlandtables.co.uk/. However, the effect of separate fuels prices is not available.
