To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what is his policy towards the promotion of energy conservation schemes in inner cities, in the light of the Association of the Conservation of Energy's report "Regenerating the Inner Cities — The Energy Dimension".

The Government believe that there should be effective energy conservation in inner cities and elsewhere. Pilot schemes to improve conservation have been supported by the Government's urban programme and other initiatives. The Department of the Environment is considering changes to the building regulations designed to raise standards of insultation, and is consulting the Association for the Conservation of Energy, among others.
