My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State expects to lay draft regulations for the early closure of the Renewables Obligation to large solar PV before Parliament early in the new year. An illustrative draft was published alongside the Government Response and is available on the government website:

The amendments to the Feed-in Tariff (FIT) were laid in October and are due to come into effect by 1st January 2015. The Government has finished consulting on a further question arising from that consultation (defining what is meant by “other-than-standalone”) and the Secretary of State expects to lay a further amendment to the FITS Order and necessary modifications to the licence conditions early in the new year.
