To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what discussions his Department has had with other Departments on the installation of solar PV on (a) any Whitehall department buildings and (b) any other Government-owned properties; and whether such installations would be eligible for solar photovoltaic feed-in tariffs.
