To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answer of 18 June 2018 to Question 154750 on Home Energy and Lifestyle Management: Kilmarnock and Loudoun, what the disclosure issues are that prevent the publication separately of statistics on loans with payback periods of 5-10 years and 10-15 years.

In order to manage the risk of revealing personal or commercial data, our approach is not to release non-zero counts of less than five for a small geographic area where additional information is provided such as payback period or Green Deal provider. Disclosure control has therefore been applied in the Answer of 18 June 2018 to Question 154750 and other Green Deal questions for small geographic areas.

Annually, BEIS publishes table 3.2.5 showing the total number of Green Deal Plans by parliamentary constituency which does include counts less than five but does not provide any additional information about the Plan. https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/household-energy-efficiency-national-statistics-detailed-report-2017
