The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme: Update on Progress and Latest Changes

    March 2010

    The redrafted CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme Order 2010 was laid before Parliament on 22 January 2010. The Order is an affirmative instrument, which means that both Houses of Parliament must expressly approve it. Each House simply expresses its wish for the SI to be annulled or passed into law. The timeframe for scrutiny is not entirely clear; the Order could be passed in as little as a few weeks, but could take longer.1 When it is debated, this will be for a maximum of an hour and a half in the Commons and possibly slightly longer in the Lords, depending on how many people want to comment.
