Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what representations he has received from the Welsh Assembly Government on the inclusion of mechanisms to enforce reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in the Climate Change Bill. (188169)

In accordance with the general principles set out in the overarching Memorandum of Understanding between Devolved Administrations, the UK Government have consulted the Welsh Assembly Government from an early stage in the development of legislative proposals in the Climate Change Bill.

We are also drawing up a Concordat which will set out detailed procedures for working together under the Bill. This will be finalised once the Bill is enacted and the full implications are confirmed.
