To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if, pursuant to the oral answer by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Worcestershire South (Mr. Spicer) of 7 March, Official Report, column 11, he will give the detailed evidence on which was based the assertion that the Danish Government's scheme to provide energy performance information for buildings is not particularly successful; what representations he has received from the Danish Government on this matter; and if he will make a statement.
My hon. Friend's remarks were based on the conclusion of a study of the Danish heat survey scheme prepared for the European Commission by independent consultants. I have received no representations from the Danish Government.
