Housing: Standards

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what progress has been made with the technical committee for the development of the Standard Assessment Procedure for homes announced in July; if she will publish the timetable of the three meetings of this committee due to be convened; and whether she expects to receive the committee’s recommendations by January 2008. (162667)

Good progress has been made. Two meetings with the Construction Products Association and the House Builders Federation have taken place. Industry feedback has been obtained and a list of issues compiled for consideration in the development of the Standard Assessment Procedure for the energy rating of homes. This list is under review. Further meetings will be convened as required and I expect to receive a report in early 2008.
