The UK Fuel Poverty Monitor, from the charities National Energy Action (NEA) and Energy Action Scotland (EAS), said the VAT from energy bills could be used to bring all UK housing occupied by low-income households up to the standard of a new home.

The study said those in Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland were more likely to live in fuel poverty but also more likely to receive support for energy efficiency measures.
