HC Deb 27 February 1996 vol 272 c449W
18. Ms Roseanna Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent discussions he has had with local authorities on the implementation of the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995; and if he will make a statement. [15504]

Mr. Robert B. Jones

The implementation of the Act was discussed by the Central and Local Government Environment Forum on 6 December. The local authority associations were represented on the working group established to consider guidance on the Act. Guidance for England will be issued very shortly; all English district and metropolitan authorities, and many other interested bodies, had the opportunity to comment on a draft.
