ENERGY EFFICIENCY (NO.
2) BILL [HL]
8. This Private Member's Bill requires a
mortgage survey to include an energy efficiency report prepared
in accordance with regulations under clause 5. These regulations
deal with changing technical details which are unsuitable for
primary legislation. They are subject to negative procedure (clause
5(8)), which the Committee considers appropriate.
9. Clause 8 is a common form provision about
making by Order in Council equivalent provision for Northern Ireland.
10. There is in clause 9 a commencement
power which extends to making transitional provisions and savings.
11. There is nothing in the Bill which
the Committee wishes to draw to the attention of the House.
