Energy Review

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 29 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr. Bone) of 12 June 2006, Official Report, column 874W, on the Energy Review, how many of the responses to the Energy Review were from (a) individuals, (b) businesses, (c) schools, (d) academia, (e) non-government organisations and (f) other organisations; and what proportions of each were (i) in favour of and (ii) opposed to the extension of nuclear energy generation. (80382)

We received over 5,300 responses to the Energy Review consultation, expressing a range of views on many aspects of the energy industry. Releasing figures for only some of the responses to the consultation, out of context and without accompanying analysis, has the potential to mislead the public by focusing on the views and comments of only one section of the respondents.

We will publish a summary of the responses to the Energy Review consultation in the coming weeks. The responses are currently being posted in full on the DTI website: www.dti.gov.uk/energy/review.
