To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will make a statement, in relation to her Department and each agency and non-departmental public body for which her Department is responsible, on (a) the amount of energy consumed, (b) spending on (i) energy and (ii) energy efficiency measures, (c) the amount saved through energy efficiency measures and (d) energy policy in each of the last five years.

The information requested is not available for a five year period. For 2001–02 expenditure on energy, including water, was £133,210. During 2002–03 the Department signed-up Office of Government Commerce contracts to better manage energy and water usage and expects to see further reductions in use and cost of those utilities. Annual data for 2002–03 is still being collated. Information for 60 non-departmental bodies is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
