§ Mr. Cartwright
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to encourage the use of low-energy light bulbs in his Department's offices and other buildings.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
All prison establishments have been advised to change to low-energy electric lighting as soon as possible and funds have been made available for this purpose. It is expected that by April this year the great majority of prison establishments will either have changed to low-energy lighting or be in the process of changing to it. Guidance has also been circulated to staff responsible for other Home Office buildings on the benefits of low-energy lighting.
