Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they support the monitoring approach set out by the Committee on Climate Change in its report Meeting Carbon Budgets—the need for a step change. [HL5638]

As required by the Climate Change Act 2008, the Government will respond to the Committee on Climate Change's first annual progress report by 15 January 2010. Departments with a carbon budget will set out their approach to monitoring delivery of emissions reductions in their forthcoming carbon reduction delivery plans. These will include milestones and indicators against which progress will be measured and will be informed by the committee's advice.
