To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give the number of dedicated energy managers in his Department and the number of person years devoted to energy management in the latest year.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give the number of energy audits carried out in his Department in the last five years and for each audit a statement of its main conclusions.

The majority of recommendations have concerned good housekeeping and other no-cost/low-cost measures which have been, or are in the process of being, implemented where practicable.
