star this property answer text <p>1 Horse Guards Road, London SW1, is the only building on the HM Treasury estate over which the department has the necessary control of the structure and services to consider improving energy efficiency by the provision of further insulation. However, as the building is Grade 2* listed, options for doing this are very limited.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The building was totally refurbished in 2002 under a PFI agreement and insulation in the structure was incorporated to the standard required at the time. It has solid walls and a flat roof structure, so retro-fitting further insulation would be both very expensive and disruptive to the business of the five Government departments and 10 ministers that operate from the building.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The PFI partner and FM provider concentrate on ensuring insulation to services are well-maintained and renewed when necessary. For example, the hot and cold pipework on the roof area have recently been reinsulated.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p><strong>The UK already has a robust regulatory regime to protect consumers in the UK mortgage market.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Throughout the negotiation of the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), the UK focused on aligning its requirements as far as possible with the existing UK regulations, with a view to minimising the impact on UK industry and consumers.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>The Government’s proposed approach to the implementation of the MCD, as with the negotiations, is to minimise the impact on the UK market. For this reason the Government is proposing to build on the existing UK regulatory regime in our transposition of the MCD, rather than copy out the Directive into UK legislation.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong>This approach is set out in more detail in the Government’s consultation on the Implementation of the EU MCD, which closed on 31 October. A summary of responses to the consultation will be published in due course.</strong></p>
