New energy-saving targets for buildings in Britain watered down

According to Paul Brown, the environmental correspondent of the Guardian, the new building regulations, due to be announced this week, won’t be as strict as promised in the 2003 government’s energy white paper. Apparently, the 2003 energy efficiency targets are being significantly watered down, with some provisions being dropped altogether.

Will the government explain the economic logic behind the relaxation of energy efficiency objectives for new building regulations?
