§ 52. Mr. Carter
asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he continues to be satisfied with the observance by Government Departments of fuel economies.91W
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
Yes. I reported to the House on 26th November that the consumption of petrol by the London Car Pool had been reduced by 15 per cent. All Government Departments are now reducing their consumption of electricity, and I understand that the Department of the Environment's headquarters in Marsham Street has saved about 20 per cent. against a target of 10 per cent.
