star this property answer text <p>The latest provisional statistics on Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) showed that around 530,000 measures were installed in 450,000 households through ECO in 2013. The full statistical release can be found at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/green-deal-and-energy-company-obligation-eco-monthly-statistics-april-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/green-deal-and-energy-company-obligation-eco-monthly-statistics-april-2014</a></p><p> </p><p>No information was collected on the number of households benefitting from the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) in 2012. Around 2.4 million measures (cavity wall insulations, loft insulations and solid wall insulations) were installed in 2012 through CERT, but more than one of these measures could have been installed in some households. We do not hold information on other measures delivered through CERT by year.</p><p> </p><p>When comparing the two years it is important to bear in mind that the rules for each scheme were different. ECO has focused particularly on the delivery of harder to treat measures which were not the main focus under CERT. CERT delivery in 2012 was also the highest of the five years of CERT as this was the last year of the scheme.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There has been a significant decrease in referrals to publicly funded family mediation since April 2013 when the legal aid reforms were implemented. This is in part due to fewer people visiting solicitors who previously would have directed clients to mediation.</p><p> </p><p>Before April 2013, attendance at a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) was a pre-requisite for legal representation for people eligible to obtain public funding. We introduced a statutory MIAM in April 2014 as part of the Children and Families Act. This placed a legal obligation on an applicant to attend a MIAM for the purpose of considering mediation, before being permitted to issue court proceedings in certain private family law matters (children and financial disputes).</p><p> </p><p>Legal aid remains available for mediation (and for legal help with mediation) for those who meet the eligibility criteria. We are keen to encourage mediation as an alternative to court both for those eligible for public funding and for privately funded cases.</p><p> </p><p>We are aware that a small number of mediation services have closed or are in difficulty. The Legal Aid Agency (LAA) is constantly monitoring the situation to make sure there is sufficient provision for client access to mediation services. While a decline in demand is a contributory factor in mediation service closures, another significant factor is poor and unsustainable business models. There is some evidence that a number of the mediation services which have closed following legal aid reforms were vulnerable to closure before the reforms took effect.</p><p> </p><p>I have convened a Family Mediation Task Force, chaired by David Norgrove, which has considered many of the issues raised by the Member of Parliament for Exeter, including how to reverse the fall in referrals and engage the second party in the mediation process, and incentivising mediators and lawyers to work in partnership to support clients through the resolution of their dispute in compliance with the new legislation. A number of short-term financial options have been considered as well as the long term view for the future of dispute resolution services.</p><p> </p><p>The Taskforce report will be published imminently. The Government will respond to the report in due course.</p><p> </p>
