Question to the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero:
To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to implement legislation on the statutory fuel price transparency scheme.
The Government has committed to consult on the design of the statutory open data scheme for road fuel prices this autumn.
Part 3 of the Data Protection and Digital Information (No.2) Bill will extend the government’s ability to establish and mandate participation in smart data schemes via regulations.
The King’s Speech on 7 November confirmed that the Bill will carryover and resume passage this Parliamentary session. Following conclusion of the consultation process and Royal Assent of the Bill, the government will lay regulations using the smart data powers to set up the statutory open data scheme for road fuel prices.
