To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what action his Department took in recognition of energy efficiency week.
§ Mr. Leslie
I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him by my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Environment on 30 October 2001,Official Report, column 592W.
My Department's initiatives to improve energy efficiency will be listed in the Green Ministers report to be published on 27 November 2001. This will include efforts by the Cabinet Office and its agency, the Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCDA), to improve energy awareness among staff. Since October 2001, 100 per cent. of electricity used at 10 Downing street and the Cabinet Office buildings at 70 Whitehall and Admiralty Arch are now being generated by renewable energy (CCL exempt) sources.
