To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
(1) with reference to page 4, Annex A, of the draft Energy Bill, whether the Government will be obliged to publish a delivery plan every five years;
(2) with reference to page 8, Annex A, of the draft Energy Bill, whether the Government will be obliged to publish an annual update of its delivery plan;
(3) with reference to figure 3, Annex A, of the draft Energy Bill, whether the Government will be obliged to follow the three-step process for producing the delivery plan and annual updates.
Annex A to the draft Energy Bill outlines my intention to publishing delivery plans every five years, with annual updates, and the process for developing it. No statutory duties regarding the publication of delivery plans or annual updates are proposed in the draft Energy Bill. The draft Energy Bill is currently undergoing pre-legislative scrutiny by the Energy and Climate Change Committee and the Department will evaluate any recommendations made when the Committee reports.
