Fuel Poverty (Targets, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Act 2019

Reporting on fuel poverty

Section 13

66.Under section 13, the Scottish Ministers are required to prepare a report on the 2040 target in relation to each local authority area – i.e. the target set out in section 1(3). This must be laid before the Scottish Parliament by 31 December 2043 at the latest. The report must include such information as Ministers can reasonably obtain as to whether the target has been met, and combined data about the percentage of households in each local authority area in fuel poverty in the period 2040 to 2042. This reflects the fact that local authority level results on fuel poverty from the Scottish House Condition Survey are produced based on a dataset that combines 3 years’ worth of data. As with the report under section 12, the information which can be included is not limited and any other information which would be useful may be included within the report.
