§ 20. Mr. Joseph Dean
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what actions have been taken in Government Departments in relation to his announcement of 21 July regarding maximum temperatures.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
The Civil Service Department has issued a general notice stating that the new maximum limit of 19°C will require Departments to eliminate areas of overheating—thereby saving energy. My PSA staff responsible for the operation of heating systems will endeavour to maintain general office temperatures in the range of 17.5°C—19°C.
