To ask the Minister for the Arts, pursuant to his answer of 1 May, Official Report, column 475, why details of energy consumption are not available for the buildings occupied by the offices for which he is responsible.
[holding answer 10 May 1990]: My office is located in two buildings, both shared with other Government Departments. They are not sub-metered to measure individual Departments' actual energy consumption. Charges are therefore made on the basis of the respective areas of floor space. I shall write to the hon. Member with further details.
