§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for Energy further to his answer of 27 November, Official Report, column 301, what theatre groups were involved in public relations activities on behalf of his Department; when and where.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
Five theatre groups have been sponsored by my Department since 1979. During Energy Efficiency Year the groups have played to 90,000 children. Their plays have been highly successful in motivating teachers and pupils to develop project work on energy and related topics. They have visited virtually every part of the United Kingdom.
