The Committees are interested in receiving views directly on the elements of the RPP3 within their remit as part of this inquiry.
Details of how to submit your views to the Committees can be found below.
The deadline for responses is 10 February 2017.
The Committees are particularly interested in the following questions as they relate to their specific remits —
- progress to date in cutting emissions within the sector/sectors of interest and implementing the proposals and policies set out in the RPP2;
- the scale of reductions proposed within their sector/s and appropriateness and effectiveness of the proposals and policies within the draft RPP3 for meeting the annual emissions targets and contributing towards the 2020 and 2050 targets;
- the appropriateness of the timescales over which the proposals and policies within the draft RPP3 are expected to take effect
- the extent to which the proposals and policies reflect considerations about behaviour change and opportunities to secure wider benefits (e.g. environmental, financial and health) from specific interventions in particular sectors.
You are invited to respond to each Committee, identifying if that response is for the individual Committee or for consideration by other Parliamentary Committees, on as many or as few of these questions as you wish.
The call for written views will help the Committees gather information and opinions about the likely impact of the draft Climate Change Plan.
Committees have a limited time in which to report to Parliament and will take oral evidence as part of the inquiry in advance of the closing date for submission of views.

The call for written views will close on 10 FEBRUARY 2017.
