Energy Review

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what recent progress has been made with the energy review. (76028)

The Government published a consultation document on 23 January this year. The consultation document—“Our Energy Challenge, Securing clean and affordable energy for the long term”—invited responses on the important energy policy issues facing the country to be considered in the current Energy Review.

Some 5,300 responses were received from members of the public, business, academia, NGOs and others. We are assessing the enormous amount of evidence received in response to the Energy Review consultation and the review will report in the summer.
