Motion text

That this House is concerned that the Government's simplification proposals for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme impacts unfairly on ports, particularly in relation to landlord and tenant responsibilities; believes that the scheme is being used as a tax on ports rather than acting as a carbon abatement device; notes that landlord provisions relating to Northern Ireland civil service buildings are being amended; and calls on the Government to consider fullythe concerns of Britain's port companies, including landlord-tenant relationships and responsibilities, in the forthcoming simplification review of the scheme to ensure that it encourages reduction in energy use rather than imposing a tax on ports.
