Answer for Green Deal

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I expect the Government's minimum energy performance standards for the Private Rented Sector, which were adopted earlier this year, to remain in place. The domestic standards require any measures to be at no upfront cost to the landlord, so we will be talking to government about how to ensure that London gets its fair share of any future supplier obligation to help support implementation of the Regulations.
