Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has made of the average carbon dioxide emissions per person per journey from London to (a) Manchester, (b) Edinburgh and (c) Bristol by (i) air, (ii) rail, (iii) lorry and (iv) car. [182375]

Mr. Jamieson: The estimates of carbon dioxide emissions per person per journey for the various routes are presented in the tables. Emissions from lorries are per tonne carried per journey. Carbon dioxide emissions are based on latest available factors provided by the National Atmospheric Emission Inventory (NAEI).

Aviation

Aviation emissions have been estimated for London to Manchester and London to Edinburgh. There is no London to Bristol service so no aviation CO 2 emission estimates have been made for this route. Aviation emissions are calculated from per passenger kilometre emission factors for short haul journeys and estimates of journey distances. Emission factors are based on passenger loadings of 100 per journey. The data on aviation are taken from DETR's Company GHG Reporting Manual 1999. Short haul refers to journeys of around 500 km.

Rail

Rail emissions are estimates of the exact trains used on each of the routes. The emissions on the London to Bristol route are based on average number of passengers obtained from train operating companies. The average occupancy on the London to Bristol route is 44 per cent. for InterCity 125 trains and 47.4 per cent. for Class 180 Adelante trains. For all other rail routes, emissions are based on average number of passengers calculated from average figures for a selection of intercity and commuter services. These equate to approximately 70 per cent. of total seating capacity and are substantially higher than the average 90 passengers per train assumed for national emission factors.

Coach

Indicative coach CO 2 emissions are based on a combined emission factor for buses and coaches. We do not have disaggregated data for coaches alone. Emissions of CO 2 per passenger per journey are calculated by multiplying the emission factor by the journey distances. It is assumed that each coach carries an average of 40 passengers.

Lorry

Lorry CO 2 emissions are per tonne and have been estimated by multiplying the average tonne per km CO 2 emission factors for lorries by the various journey distances. The average lorry loading factor is 5.29 tonnes based on calculations using data from Transport Statistics Great Britain 2002.

Car

Car CO 2 emissions are per passenger estimates calculated from emission factors and journey distances. Car emissions are based on passenger loadings of 1.56 persons per car.

Miss McIntosh: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has a statutory responsibility to meet (a) the deficit and (b) the interest on that deficit incurred by the Civil Aviation Authority. [182395]

Mr. McNulty: Section 8(1) of the Civil Aviation Act 1982 lays a duty on the CAA to conduct its affairs so as to recover the costs it incurs, taking one year with another, in discharging its statutory functions. The Secretary of State, therefore, has no statutory responsibility to meet any deficit incurred by the Authority.

Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency

John Thurso: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the total value was of (a) technical and financial contracts, (b) technical consultants used on a call-off basis and (c) financial consultants used on a call-off basis by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency in each year since 2001.
