The Energy White Paper was collectively agreed by Ministers (including the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) before being presented to Parliament in February 2003. Since then my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry has met regularly with colleagues from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, in a variety of fora, to discuss sustainable development and energy issues. Energy efficiency and the implementation of the energy efficiency aims in the Energy White Paper have formed part of those discussions.
