Housing Bill — Improvement in Energy Efficiency — 3 Nov 2004 at 18:06

Viscount Bridgeman voted with the majority (Content).

The majority of Lords voted to insert a new clause into the Housing Bill (2004), which read:[2]

  • For the purposes of
  • improving the energy efficiency of residential accommodation;
  • increasing the comfort level of occupants of residential accommodation; and
  • alleviating fuel poverty,
  • the Secretary of State shall take reasonable steps to ensure an increase in residential energy efficiency of at least 20% by 2010 based upon 2000 levels.

This new clause was later deleted by the House of Commons.[2]
