To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps the Cabinet Office (a) has taken and (b) intends to take by (i) 2012 and (ii) 2020 in relation to adaptation to the effects of climate change as they affect the Office’s responsibilities; and if he will make a statement. (166423)

The Cabinet Office is committed to addressing both the causes and consequences of climate change.
