Section 39 - Proposals and policies for meeting carbon budgets
167.This section places a duty on the Welsh Ministers to prepare a report for each budgetary period which sets out their proposals and policies on how the budget they have set will be met. The report must include proposals and policies by reference to the areas of responsibilities of each of the Welsh Ministers. For the first budgetary period the report is to be produced as soon as reasonably practicable after setting the carbon budget for that period (as provided in section 31). For subsequent budgetary periods the report must be published before the end of the first year of the period in question. The Welsh Ministers are required to publish the report.
