  • That the amendment be made.

Amendment (a)[2] proposed a new clause titled Review of minimum energy performance requirements and stated:

  • After section 2B of the Building Act 1984 insert—
  • “Duty to review minimum energy performance requirements
  • 2C Review of minimum energy performance requirements
  • The Secretary of State must carry out a review of any minimum energy performance requirements approved by the Secretary of State under building regulations in relation to dwellings in England.”
