asked the Secretary of State for Energy, on the basis of the assumption that the fuel used to generate the power consumed by motorway floodlighting is oil, what is the cost of importing this oil at current prices during a typical December week.

I regret that the precise figures are not available, but a round estimate suggests that the cost of importing sufficient oil to floodlight motorways during a typical December week is very approximately £6,000.
