Energy Performance Certificates and Home Information Packs

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate he has made of the number of (a) energy performance certificates and (b) home information packs that were purchased in the last 12 months.

[Official Report, 8 July 2009, Vol. 495, c. 902W.]

Letter of correction from Mr. John Healey:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Peterborough (Mr. Jackson) on 8 July 2009. The figure cited for the number of home information packs produced during the period 1 July 2008 to 30 June 2009 was incorrect and should have read 956,000 rather than the published figure of 1.1 million. I have notified the MP of the error.

The correct answer should have been as follows: (284264)

Information about the number of energy performance certificates (EPCs) lodged in England and Wales in both the domestic and non-domestic sectors is available on the EPC register website at:

www.epcregister.com

There is no central register for the number of home information packs however we estimate that 956,000 home information packs have been produced during the period 1 July 2008 to 30 June 2009.
