asked the Secretary of State for Energy what information he has as to the total expenditure during 1986–87 incurred upon the heating and lighting of properties occupied by each of the public bodies for which he has responsibility; and if he will list details of the amount spent on energy efficiency measures in these properties during the same period.
This information is not held by my Department but I have asked Chairmen of the appropriate public bodies to write to the hon. Gentleman.
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will give details of the total expenditure during 1986–87 incurred upon the heating and lighting of properties for which he is directly responsible; and if he will give details of the amounts spent on energy efficiency measures in these properties during the same period.
My Department does not have direct responsibility for the heating in our main building, where we are tenants. Total expenditure on heating and lighting for my Department's main building during 1986–87 was £112,192 and my Department's share of fuel bills for buildings where it is a minority occupant was £35,649. Over the same period my Department spent some £13,000 on a major draughtproofing programme and other energy efficiency measures in its main building and achieved a 7 per cent. saving in electricity consumption.
