HC Deb 07 December 1983 vol 50 c159W
Mr. Gerald Howarth

asked the Secretary of State for Energy how much it costs his Department per year to produce and distribute the newspaper Energy Management; and if he will arrange for it to be privatised.

Mr. Peter Walker

Energy Management newspaper costs £136,000 to produce and distribute annually. The newspaper is an essential component in the energy efficiency office's programme of information and advice to industry. I would consider any proposal to privatise the newspaper, if it would continue to provide industry with the information and advice currently provided.
