The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) was created in October 2008, to bring together:

energy policy (previously with BERR, which is now BIS, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills); and climate change mitigation policy (previously with Defra, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).

Therefore, the reply to this Question in respect of the Department of Energy and Climate Change is included in the Answer given today to the noble Lord, Lord Newby, by my noble friend the Minister for Postal Affairs and Employment Relations and the Answer given by my noble friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to Written Questions from the noble Lord Newby on 19 January 2010 (Hansard, cols.
