With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 10—Functions of the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority in relation to microgeneration—

‘In section 47 of the Electricity Act 1989 (c. 29) (functions of the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority), after subsection (1) insert—

“(1A)The activities to which subsection (1) applies also include, in particular, activities connected with the generation of electricity by microgeneration or with the transmission and supply of electricity so generated.

(1B)In subsection (1A), “microgeneration” has the same meaning as it has in section 82 of the Energy Act 2004 (Secretary of State’s strategy for promotion of microgeneration)”.’.
