asked the Secretary of State for Energy what newspapers are produced by his Department, what is their function; how many people they employ; to whom they are distributed; and what is the total cost to public funds per annum.
The Department produces one newspaper, Energy Management. The newspaper is printed monthly and seeks to spread good energy management practice and provide up-to-date information about new energy saving methods and technologies. Energy Management has a circulation of 34,000 copies and is sent to energy managers in industry, commerce, local authorities and major public sector energy users. Two members of information division are engaged on its production. The cost to public funds of Energy Management, including printing, production, postage and staff, is £79,600.
