Mr. Jenkin: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he will assess the benefits of charging the benefit in kind taxation paid by an employee in receipt of a company-provided car on the cost of purchasing the car by the employer; 
Dawn Primarolo [holding answer 14 December 2000]: The company car tax charge is based on the car's list price at first registration as this is easily obtainable and is the fairest figure on which to base the charge. Introduced from April 1994, this was the preferred option of the majority of those who responded to the 1992 consultation on the reform of company car taxation. It ensures that employees driving identical cars of the same age pay the same tax. List price will therefore continue to be used when the company car tax system is reformed from April 2002.
Basing the tax charge on the cost to the employer of providing the company car would create inequities between employees driving identical cars. However, in recent weeks most car manufacturers have reduced their list prices. This means company car drivers will accordingly pay less tax as their cars are replaced.
Mr. Timms: In common with other sectors, the proportion of energy used by the Scottish whisky industry which is exempt from the climate change levy will depend upon the extent to which the sector chooses to make use of renewable energy or combined heat and power.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the total reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as a result of agreements concluded with (a) business sectors and (b) individual firms in connection with the introduction of the climate change levy.

Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many enterprises in the United Kingdom horticulture industry have benefited from capital allowances in respect of thermal screens for glasshouses as a result of the extension of the list of investments qualifying for capital allowances following the introduction of the climate change levy; and what is the value of the allowances made. 
Mr. Timms [holding answer 14 December 2000]: None. As announced in Spending Review 2000, energy efficiency funding from the climate change levy will be administered by a business-led, not-for-profit, limited company, the Carbon Trust, which is currently being set up through the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his most recent estimate is of (a) the number of businesses which will engage in self- certification for the purpose of claiming relief from the climate change levy and (b) the compliance costs for the businesses concerned. 
Mr. Timms [holding answer 12 December 2000]: The climate change levy package will be revenue neutral for the private sector. Estimated emissions savings are shown in Table 6.2 of the pre-Budget report 2000.
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list each new publication issued by his Department since 1997; and what the total cost was to the Department of each publication.

the Department's publications and also gives the dates of publication. It is extensive and includes publications produced before 1997. I am today placing copies of this document in the Library of the House.
Mr. Matthew Taylor: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what directions overriding a note of dissent by an accounting officer have been given by the boards of non-departmental public bodies within his Department's remit since May 1997; and if he will place details of such directions in the Library.
