To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, how many contracts signed by his Department with suppliers of services or consultants include a clause providing that if the contract is abrogated by the Government, the provider or consultant will be compensated for lost income since 2010.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change does not hold this information centrally and it can only be provided at a disproportionate cost. The Department’s standard terms and conditions include a cancellation clause which provides for termination upon giving the supplier 28 days’ notice. The Department endeavours to manage its relationship with suppliers fairly and complies with all contractual obligations applicable prior to any termination.
