Fuel Oil: Lancashire

Volume 493: debated on Monday 8 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what estimate he has made of the volume of domestic fuel oil consumed by households in Lancashire between 1 November and 31 March in each of the last five years; and what assessment he has made of the likely effects of the implementation of the National Energy Efficiency Saving Plan on such volumes. (278577)

The domestic fuel oil consumption statistics for Lancashire are not available for the requested period of 1 November to 31 March as DECC only publish sub-national energy consumption statistics on a calendar year basis. The annual statistics are currently available for the years 2003 to 2006 and can be seen in the following table. It must be noted that the data are modelled and that there are methodological differences between 2003 and 2004 and the later years. The changes were recognised as improvements and as such the statistics gained National Statistics status in 2005. Details of all methodologies can be found at:
