asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he is able to estimate the total cost of electric power consumed by street lighting in England and Wales during one hour of the night; and what is the cost of the same at current rates of electricity charges.

The cost of electricity for street lighting varies according to circumstances. I am advised by the Electricity Council that the present level of electricity charges averages about £7,000 for one hour's street lighting in England and Wales.
