To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what estimate he has made of the net cost to the Exchequer of the Government's Climate Change Agreements in each of the last five years.
I have been asked to reply.
Estimates of the cost to the Exchequer of the Government's Climate Change Agreements were published in Table 7, of the 2009 pre-Budget report, 'Tax Ready Reckoner', as follows:
