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:

CCA net cost estimates
Fiscal year £ million
2006-07 350
2007-08 350
2008-09 280

Estimates of costs associated with Climate Change Agreement were not published prior to 2006-07.
