To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether there will be a further meeting of the Economy Council sub-group for energy-intensive industries to review plans for mitigation from the carbon price floor; and whether individual businesses will be consulted on site-specific mitigation before it is announced.

holding answer 23 November 2011

I am working closely with Government colleagues to deliver the commitment the Government gave earlier this year to create a package of measures to support those energy intensive industries whose international competitiveness is most affected by our energy and climate change policies. We will announce details before the end of the year.

We have welcomed industry's helpful input to the development of the package through the Green Economy Council Energy Intensive Industries sub-group. I have also met several times with chief executives of energy intensive industries here and in Germany. There are no further plans to discuss measures before our announcement.
