I would like to inform the House that a written answer I gave on 22 October 2010, Official Report, column 923W to the hon. Member for Glasgow Central (Anas Sarwar) contained some inadvertent errors in that National Energy Action (NEA), Keep Britain Tidy and Action for a Global Climate Community Ltd were included in the answer. These three organisations should not have been included in the answer as each of them were recipients of grants.
The correct information is as follows:
DECC was formed in October 2008. The Department did not award any contracts to voluntary organisations during the financial year 2008-09.
Contracts awarded by the Department during the financial year 2009-10 to such organisations are as follows :
Amount paid (£)
The London Wildlife Trust
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)
