Departmental Buildings

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will place in the Library a copy of the (a) display energy certificates and (b) advisory reports for public buildings issued in respect of each property occupied by (i) his Department and (ii) its agencies. (256043)

Display energy certificates (DECs) and advisory reports issued for public buildings are not held centrally in respect of Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and all its agencies. To commission copies of (a) display energy certificates and (b) advisory reports, to be placed in the Library for over 500 buildings, with the associated costs of copying, postage and staff time to complete the work could be done only at disproportionate cost. Accordingly, MOJ will not be placing these in the Library.

The DEC ratings for MOJ buildings completed as at October 2008 can be found in the OGC Sustainable Procurement and Operations on the Government Estate—Government Delivery Plan Update, published on 18 December 2008, a copy of which can be found at:

Annex B of the plan provides the relevant information on MOJ DECs.
