The body representing those authorities, the NHS Confederation, has recently written to all MPs saying they would welcome such guidance, but health ministers have blocked the Bill. So we have the absurd situation in which health authorities are saying to the Government, "We want to help. Please give us guidance on how we can do so," and the Government saying, "No."
Such is Labour's concern for the 8 million households living in fuel poverty.
