London had the lowest number of Green Deal assessments in the country this year, reveal new government statistics.
The checks are to see what energy saving improvements a house needs and may be able to get under the struggling government insulation scheme.
At 0.6 assessments per 1,000 households, the London and Westminster constituency had a fraction of other constituencies.
Nottingham South had the highest number of assessments, at 51 per 1,000 houses.
While London and Westminster’s small turnout may be explained by the relatively low number of permanent residents, neighbouring constituencies with several hundred thousand dwellers were similarly low.
Kensington, Westminster North, Chelsea and Fulham, Battersea and Wimbledon had the next lowest number of Green Deal assessments.
