To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many energy saving light bulbs were purchased by his Department for use on the departmental estate in (a) 2005 and (b) 2006. (144945)

The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs does not record the number of energy saving light bulbs purchased on a year by year basis.

In accordance with the Government's sustainable procurement policies and the recommendations of the sustainable procurement task force, all light bulbs purchased for use on the departmental estate are energy saving bulbs.

Additionally, any remaining tungsten lighting within the estate is being replaced with energy saving bulbs as part of the ongoing sustainability review.
