HC Deb 30 March 2000 vol 347 c219W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make it his policy to discover what proportion of the energy supplied to his Department by utility companies comes from renewable sources. [116270]

Ms Stuart

Buildings occupied by the Department and its agencies currently purchase energy from utility companies through contracts let by the buying agency.

In future procurement of energy, where the Department of Health is the lead Department, we will require the supplier to provide information on the proportion of the energy supplied that comes from renewable sources.
