Fuel Poverty in Hendon

13 February 2012: A recent Parliamentary Question by Hendon MP Matthew Offord asking for DECC’s latest estimate on the number of fuel poor households in his constituency and more widely.

Mr Offord: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many households in (a) Hendon constituency,(b) London and (c) the UK are in fuel poverty. [93222]

Gregory Barker: In 2009, the most recent year for which data are available, the number of households in fuel poverty for these areas was as follows:

Area Number of households in fuel poverty
(a) Hendon constituency 5,400
(b) London 402,000
(c) UK 3,964,000

Estimates made by Government of fuel poverty at the regional and local authority area were last published by DECC in 2011 using 2009 data (download spreadsheet here) hence the answer to the above question.  DECC’s latest issue of Energy Trends also issued an article on this data. More recent non-governmental estimates have been made (however not at the local authority level) and can be seen here.
