Pre-Legislative Scrutiny: Draft Energy Bill

The Committee has finished taking evidence on this inquiry and published its report on 12 July 2012.

The Energy and Climate Change Committee is holding an inquiry to examine the draft Bill with a view to reporting soon after the House rises for the summer recess (17 July). This is to ensure that the Committee's conclusions and recommendations can feed into preparations for the introduction of a real Bill in the autumn.
