Question to the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero:
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, what steps her Department is taking to ensure that light-sensitive people will continue to have access to non-LED lightbulbs following the implementation of minimum energy performance standards for lightbulbs.
The existing Ecodesign regulations which set the minimum energy performance standards for lighting products already contain an exemption which allows light-sensitive people access to non-LEDs via a medical prescription. As part of our proposals to update the minimum energy performance standards for lighting products, the Government consulted on an amendment to the exemption which would enable light-sensitive people to access non-LED lightbulbs more easily.
The Government response will be published in due course.
