Housing: Carbon Emissions

Volume 470: debated on Monday 7 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what records the Land Registry keeps of the number and location of zero carbon homes. (176373)

Her Majesty’s Land Registry does not hold any records relating to zero carbon rating homes. The strategy to make all new homes zero carbon by 2016 comes under the jurisdiction of the Department for Communities and Local Government. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs may collate statistics relating to homes qualifying for zero carbon tax relief through the monitoring of stamp duty land tax, following the introduction of the Stamp Duty Land Tax (Zero-Carbon Homes Relief) Regulations on 7 December 2007.
