§ Mr. Rowlands
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what are his Department's target reductions in energy usage for 1988–89; what is his Department's target reduction in electricity usage for lighting in 1988–89; and what investment his Department is planning to make in new energy-efficient lighting equipment in 1988–89 to achieve those target reductions.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
My Department has no plans to invest in new energy-efficient measures in our main building, where we are the principal tenants, as we will be vacating the premises in the summer of 1989. My Department, though, has set a target reduction in electricity consumption within its control, for 1988–89, of 7 per cent. Electricity used for lighting cannot be identified separately from overall electricity consumption.
