HC Deb 11 May 1978 vol 949 cc572-3W
Mr. Forman

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will set out in tabular form the energy savings which have been achieved in terms of final energy consumption in the United Kingdom in each of the years from 1973 to the latest available date; if he will break down the figures according to the different sectors of energy use, namely, domestic, commercial, industrial, and transport; and if he will provide the comparable figures for each of the other eight member States of the EEC.

Dr. John Cunningham

The answer for the United Kingdom has already been given in primary energy terms in reply to a Question on 11th May 1977 [Vol. 931, c.553–4] and repeated on 16th December 1977 [Vol. 941, c. 526.] No further estimates of savings or comparable information for the other EEC member States can be provided at present. Methods of calculation and associated difficulties are, however, under consideration both in the United Kingdom and internationally.
