Departmental Energy

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department spent on energy bills in respect of its estate in each year since its inception; and how much he expects to spend in each of the next two years. (304752)

The Department for Children, Schools and Families spent the following amounts on energy bills in the following years:

£

2007/08

1,489,366

2008/09

1,683,021

Due to billing cycles differing in each of our buildings, it is not possible to provide any figures for the current financial year, and as we are only a proportion of the way through the year, such figures would not be comparable with those above.

The Department is not in possession of sufficient information to predict its expenditure on energy for the next two years.
