Recent appearances

  • Energy and Climate Change: Housing (Energy Efficiency) 8 Apr 2010

    What recent steps his Department has taken to improve the energy efficiency of housing; and if he will make a statement.
  • Energy and Climate Change: Housing (Energy Efficiency) 8 Apr 2010

    Such a Government initiative has been of great benefit to New Addington in Croydon, a significant social housing estate that was excellent for the 1950s in terms of space and good design. What can be done to support the initiative of local people who want the area to become an eco-town? What prospects are there?
  • Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions 8 Apr 2010

    When I walk home late at night following late sittings in the House, I often notice birds singing because of the light pollution. Does the Minister think that that is a potential issue, and could any action be taken to deal with that significant distortion to our climate and environment?
