Energy Bill — Renewable energy feed-in tariff — rejected — 30 Apr 2008 at 17:30

Stuart Bell MP, Middlesbrough voted against forcing the Government to establish a renewable energy feed-in tariff

The majority of MPs voted against requiring the Secretary of State to establish a renewable energy feed-in tariff that would have rewarded consumers for each kilowatt hour of energy exported back onto the public gas or electricity network from a renewable source.[1]

The proposal[2] would have been included as part of the Energy Bill,[3] and resulted in a set of regulations being laid before Parliament within one year of the law being passed.
