Light Bulbs

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what proportion of light bulbs purchased by his Department in 2005 were of the compact fluorescent type. (98260)

The Department has a variety of light fittings which accept a wide range of bulbs. No records are kept of the numbers or frequency of lamp replacement and the cost of obtaining these figures would be disproportionate. Compact fluorescents are, where practicable, the preferred type of light bulb.
