Pre-legislative scrutiny of the Government’s draft legislation on energy inquiry


Government Response

The Government has published draft legislation on smart metering, supply and switching and competitive tendering for onshore transmission. The Committee is conducting pre-legislative scrutiny of these proposals to understand whether they are workable, necessary, efficient and clear.

The Committee intends to publish a report in April so that the Department of Energy and Climate Change has time to consider its recommendations and, if appropriate, reflect them in the final legislation.
