Departmental Energy

Volume 506: debated on Tuesday 2 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what steps his Department plans to take to participate in the Earth Hour event on 27 March 2010. (319097)

Throughout the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), as part of our continuing efforts to reduce energy consumption, staff are regularly reminded to turn off computers, monitors and other electrical equipment, unplug mobile phone chargers and switch off lights when rooms are not in use. As the 2010 Earth Hour event is on Saturday 27 March, many of our buildings will be unoccupied. The MoJ HQ estate will participate through contractors turning off any lighting not required and ensuring meeting room co-ordinators check video link screens and televisions are not left on standby.

The MoJ will publicise the Earth Hour event to staff through the staff Intranet.
