The article focuses on a report from the National Audit Office (NAO) of Great Britain on the Warm Homes scheme. The report claims that many customers receiving help from the government's scheme are not in fuel poverty. Although it was praised by those using the scheme, the NAO said contracting arrangements were inadequate. It also had concerns over people who dropped out of the programme, some because they had to make a contribution to the work.
