To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he plans to adopt the EU Ecodesign Directive on improving the environmental performance of appliances after the UK leaves the EU.

The Department laid a Statutory Instrument in Parliament on 19th December 2018 which will bring all direct EU Ecodesign legislation that is operative before exit day into UK law. This will ensure that all existing minimum energy performance standards for energy-using products remain in force after the UK leaves the EU. I expect this to be debated in Parliament in the coming weeks.
