Energy Bill — Clause 42 — Bring Forward Date Landlords of Private Rented Homes Must Follow Domestic Energy Efficiency Regulations — 14 Sep 2011 at 18:18
The majority of MPs voted against requiring landlords of private rented homes to make their properties meet regulations on energy efficiency by January 2016 rather than April 2018 as initially proposed.
MPs were debating the Energy Bill, the text of the rejected amendment was:
- Amendment: 47, page 28, line 33, leave out ‘April 2018’ and insert ‘January 2016’.—
This would have had effected on subclause 42(3) which following the rejection of the amendment remained stating: The first domestic energy efficiency regulations must come into force no later than 1 April 2018.
