Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what files are held by his Department on (a) the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000 and (b) the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Bill of Session 1999-2000; and if he will make a statement. (273839)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 21 April 2009, Official Report, column 557W.

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what (a) statutory instruments, (b) departmental circulars, (c) consultation documents and (d) other documents he (i) has issued and (ii) plans to issue in the next 12 months consequent on the provisions of the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000; and if he will make a statement. (274050)

There have been no statutory instruments, department circulars or consultation documents issued on the provision of the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000.

As required by the Warm Homes and Energy Conservation Act 2000, the Secretary of State publishes an annual progress report to give an update on progress against the targets set under the Act.

Except in relation to the annual report, there has been no decision made on the issue of any future documents. DECC is currently undertaking a review of its fuel poverty policies. Initial findings of this review are expected in the summer of 2009. It is too early to say whether there will be a consultation in the next 12 months as a result of this process.
