To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what discussions his Department has had with the Office of Fair Trading to ensure that it will allow Green Deal Finance to be attached to a property, rather than be treated as a loan attached to an individual; and if he will place in the Library a copy of any correspondence on this issue.

This is not a matter for the Office of Fair Trading and there have been no discussions or correspondence with the Office of Fair Trading on this issue. The Energy Act 2011 made provisions for Green Deal repayments to be made by the electricity bill payer for the property and collected through electricity bills. These powers will allow the charge to transfer automatically from bill payer to bill payer.
