§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make it his policy to require clear labelling of appliances to show energy consumption; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
Nearly all manufacturers in western Europe already provide energy consumption information in their brochures and in the users' instructions for new appliances. We are considering the report of the study of the energy efficiency of appliances which we have recently received and will be considering the way ahead in the light of its findings.
