To ask Her Majesty's Government to which bodies they provide funding for matters relating to climate change; how much was provided to each such body in the last year for which figures are available; and which departments provided the funding to each body. [HL1485]
As requested, the 2008-09 figure for HMG funding to the Carbon Trust was £89 million.
The 2008-09 figure for HMG resource funding to the Energy Saving Trust was £35.491 million. The EST was also allocated £l million to fund three technological field trials.
This would have been funded by Defra, then DECC in light of the machinery of government changes which occurred during that year.
