HC Deb 27 October 2003 vol 412 c108WS
Gregory Barker

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he plans to set requirements for entire renovated buildings over 1,000 sq m as proposed under Article 6 of Directive 2002/91 on the Energy Performance of Buildings. [134545]

Phil Hope

Article 6 indicates that, when buildings with floor areas over 1000 square meters undergo major renovation, "the requirements may be set either for the renovated building as a whole or for the renovated systems or components when these are part of a renovation to be carried out in a limited time period". The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister shall decide on which of these options to pursue during the course of the review of the Building Regulations announced in the Energy White Paper earlier this year.
