To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate she has made of the total carbon emissions from her Department's buildings in each year since 1997. (89415)

The reported carbon emissions (weather corrected) from the Department's administrative estate from 1999-2000, in KgC are as follows:

Number

1999-2000

2,132,304

2000-2001

1,994,142

2001-2002

1,902,955

2002-2003

1,977,187

2003-2004

2,026,227

2004-2005
