To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how much his Department has spent on promotional items carrying the Department's branding and logo since its inception; and what those items were.

The spend on promotional items is:

(a) £2,454, a combined order of a mug for each member of staff as part of our departmental launch and low cost branded pens for internal and external use

(b) £450, a further set of mugs to promote DECC's new values.

As well as having a promotional aspect these items were produced for sustainability reasons in support of our departmental remit. The pens were produced from recycled materials and the mugs used to reduce the use of disposable cardboard cups.

We have deliberately kept use of such promotional materials to a minimum.
