Energy: Conservation

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 19 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many (a) energy action plans and (b) buildings have been adapted for energy efficiency under the Eighth Inclusive Communities Budget; at what cost; and whether a Ninth Inclusive Communities Budget is planned. (142592)

Priority areas for round 8 of the Invest to Save Budget—Inclusive Communities included improved energy efficiency in the public sector and third sector bodies and efficiency and increased access to the arts and culture sector. I refer to the written answer given to the hon. Member for Rayleigh (Mr. Francois) on 25 April 2007, Official Report, column 1162W, for further detail about these projects. These projects are in their initial stages and we do not have the detail on energy action plans or numbers of buildings adapted at this stage.

Round 9 of the Invest to Save Budget concluded on 27 October 2006 and winners were announced with the Budget on 21 March 2007. Details of the successful projects can be found in the House Library.
