To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much(a) electricity and (b) other energy his Department has used in each year since 1997 (i) in total and (ii) per square metre; what the projected use is for each of the following years for which forecasts are made; what plans he has to reduce usage; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ruth Kelly
I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the right hon. Member for Suffolk, South (Mr. Yeo) on 30 April 2003,Official Report, column 373W. The Chancellor's Departments will continue to ensure that they minimise energy spend/consumption while still meeting business needs. The Departments remain fully committed to meeting the challenging demands of the Government's Framework Targets.
