Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proportion of light bulbs purchased by her Department in 2005 were of the compact fluorescent type. (98258)

80 per cent. of all light bulbs purchased by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in 2005-06 were of energy efficient types. 38 per cent. of all light bulbs purchased by the FCO were compact fluorescent bulbs. This information relates to our home estate. We do not hold data centrally on the purchase of light bulbs for our overseas estate.
