Answer for ECO Concerns

Answered By: 
The Mayor

DECC's conclusions document on the future of ECO published on 22 July, did not address my concerns. As set out in my consultation response, the policy changes are likely to lead to disproportionately less measures and CO2 emissions reductions in London compared to the rest of the UK. These remain a concern and my officers are currently working with DECC to explore how London can receive its fair share in the future.
