Mr Blunt: The Director of Analytical Services in the Ministry of Justice is to compile all the available research and statistics relating to this issue into an independent report and publish this before summer recess.
Zac Goldsmith: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what progress has been made on implementation of the Johannesburg Summit agreement on phasing out energy subsidies which inhibit sustainable development; and if he will make a statement. 
Charles Hendry: G20 countries committed at Pittsburgh in 2009 to rationalise and phase out over the medium term inefficient fossil fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption. Progress will be discussed at the Toronto summit later this month.
Caroline Lucas: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change if he will publish the report of the Redfern Inquiry on examination of tissue taken from individuals who had worked in the nuclear industry in time to ensure that hon. Members are able to debate its findings before the summer adjournment. 
Charles Hendry: There is currently no publication date for the report of the Redfern inquiry on examination of tissue taken from individuals who had worked in the nuclear industry. We do expect to make an announcement before summer recess.
Ms Ritchie: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of the subsidy for the proposed £20 billion building programme for new nuclear plants. 
Charles Hendry: The coalition agreement is clear that there will be no public subsidy for new nuclear power stations.
Ms Ritchie: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what his Department's budget is for the clean up of existing nuclear waste in 2010-11. 
Charles Hendry: The total planned expenditure for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the body responsible for the clean up of the UK's historic civil public sector nuclear, for 2010-11 is £2.84 billion. The Department directly funds £1.69 billion and the remainder is generated by NDA's commercial operations.
Jonathan Edwards: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what his plans are for the future of the Renewable Heat Incentive; and if he will make a statement. 
Gregory Barker: I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Sevenoaks (Michael Fallon) on 15 June 2010, Official Report, columns 367-368W.
Mr Meacher: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what proportion of electricity was generated from renewable sources of energy in each of the last 20 years; and what information his Department holds for benchmarking purposes on comparable figures for (a) Germany, (b) France, (c) Italy, (d) Spain, (e) the Netherlands, (f) Austria, (g) Finland, (h) Denmark and (i) Sweden. 
Charles Hendry: The information requested is as follows:
Table 1 shows the proportion of electricity generated from renewable sources of energy between 1990 and 2009. Data for 2009 are provisional and exclude an estimate for non-bio degradable waste use.
|Table 1 : UK Generation from renewable sources, 1990-2009|
|Total UK Generation (GWh)||UK Generation from Renewable sources (GWh)||Proportion of electricity generated from renewable sources (%)|
Table 2 shows similar data obtained from Eurostat, for 1997 to 2007. However, this uses a different definition, showing renewable generation as a proportion of gross electricity consumption.
|Table 2: Electricity generated from renewable sources as % of gross electricity consumption, for European countries, 1997-2007|
