§ Mr. Dobson
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment, pursuant to the answer of 30 April,Official Report, column 448, why figures for energy consumption by unit of consumption are not available for his Department.
§ Mr. Nicholls
The nature of the Department of Employment group estate and the methods by which energy bills were paid is such that overall records by unit of consumption are not available. Where PSA was responsible for payment of energy bills information by unit of consumption is available. Where the Department has paid energy bills direct, only the cost element of the bill has been recorded and information by unit of consumption is not available.
