To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what reduction her Department has made in (a) road transport vehicle carbon dioxide emissions and (b) single occupancy car commuting against baseline years of (i) 2003–04 and (ii) 2004–05.

As the Department for Culture, Media and Sport is situated in central London on a site with very limited facilities for car parking, the great majority of staff travel by public transport. We have no plans to increase the very limited number of parking spaces, which are primarily for staff with disabilities. We also encourage those staff who wish to travel by bicycle to do so, and provide showers and changing facilities. Ministerial cars are provided by the Government Car and Dispatch Service. Currently four out of the five cars we use are dual fuelled and thus low in carbon emissions.
