§ Mr. Chaytor
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will list those members of the Carbon Trust Board who represent(a) the energy supply industry, (b) the energy efficiency industry, (c) local government and (d) the rest of the public sector. 
§ Mr. Meacher
[holding answer 8 November 2001]: For a full list of Carbon Trust Board Members, I refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to him on 5 November 2001, Official Report, column 36–37W. Appointments to the Carbon Trust Board are a matter for the Chairman and the Board. However, Government non-executive directors are appointed to represent the public interest and the interests of their respective Departments and Devolved Administrations.
The independent non-executive directors are appointed on a personal basis and not to represent any particular interest. The aim is to bring the right balance of skills and experience to the strategic direction of the company. The executive team and work programme of the Carbon Trust will be developed to address operational or sectoral needs. In addition the Carbon Trust will be establishing stakeholder advisory groups to establish dialogue with and represent the interests of particular groups.
§ Mr. Stunell
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what was the total level of Government financial support made available to energy efficiency measures in each year since 1990. 
§ Mr. Meacher
[holding answer 7 November 2001]: The funding made available by the Department and its predecessors to support and promote efficiency measures in each year since 1990 is as follows:
Year £million 1990–91 18.4 1991–92 39.3 1992–93 49.4 1993–94 60.3 1994–95 102.7 1995–96 128.5 1996–97 116.0 1997–98 110.5 1998–99 109.0 1999–2000 112.0 2000–01 1163.5 1 Estimated
The core of this spend is the Energy Efficiency Best Practice Programme, support for the Energy Saving Trust and the Home Energy Efficiency Scheme. Energy Saving Trust funding for Scotland was devolved from 1 July 591W 1999. Between 1991–99, the Home Energy Efficiency Scheme covered the whole of Great Britain. In July 1999 and April 2000, separate programmes were set up in Scotland and Wales respectively. For these devolved areas, it is the responsibility of the respective Parliaments and Assemblies to comment on the funding situation.
