Energy: Licensed Premises

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 140222, tabled on 1 May 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of the proposed EU ecodesign and energy labelling regulations on the sustainability of UK entertainment venues.

The Department does not carry out cost benefit analysis of early drafts of EU Ecodesign Regulations. Once we see the final version of this regulation before the Regulatory Committee vote in Brussels, where the UK and other Member States will vote on the regulation, we will carry out a cost benefit analysis for the UK but not specific sectors. The Ecodesign proposal for lighting that I assume you are referring to will be voted on in October/November 2018 and we would expect to see a final version one month prior to that.
