To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government on how many occasions officials in her Department discussed the proposed labelling of heating systems in the energy-using products directive with representatives of the European Commission in each of the last two years. (205440)

I have been asked to reply.

To date, my officials have held four discussions on this subject with representatives of the European Commission. These consisted of a bilateral on 31 January 2008, two energy-using products consultation forums on 18 December 2007 and 29 February 2008 and a conference call on 24 April 2007.

Additionally, an informal meeting with the European Commission and other member states has been arranged for 22 May.
