Freedom's Light Flickers Out
By September this year 100W incandescent bulbs will no longer be sold in shops, followed by 60W bulbs in 2011 and all incandescent models by 2012.
As part of the same legislation retailers will be forced to label lightbulbs in Lumens from September 2010.
"Consumers have to be made aware that this is nothing to confuse them but this will actually help them to make the right choice,"
We will ban and legislate so that there is only one choice, the right choice and you will make it, you understand?
