§ Mr. Malcolm Bruce
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland on what grounds it was decided not to introduce the new building regulations concerning the conservation of fuel and power in Scotland in April 1990.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
The building regulations which will come into effect in April 1990 were made under the Building Act 1984, which applies only to England and Wales. I have included similar improvements for the conservation of fuel and power in a major revision of all parts of the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations, made under the Building (Scotland) Act 1959, which I intend to lay before Parliament later this year.
