HL Deb 24 January 2002 vol 630 c217WA
Baroness Gibson of Market Rasen

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When bids will be invited under their new community energy programme. [HL2475]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Lord Whitty)

The opening pathfinder bidding round for the £50 million community energy programme is being launched today. We expect to allocate around £5 million under this initial round for schemes that will provide carbon savings; help to alleviate fuel poverty among householders; and reduce fuel costs for hospitals, universities and other community buildings.

I am placing copies of the programme documentation in the House Library.
