Response:

Thank you for your enquiry of 2 April 2015 requesting information we hold relating to the responses to the government consultation on Green House Gases (GHG) emissions.

I have dealt with your request under the terms of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004. These regulations are parallel to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and cover the information that you have requested. Both these legislation gives you the right to know whether we hold the information you require and, if so, to be provided with that information.

The information you have asked for is not held by The National Archives. Having searched the www.gov.uk website this consultation was led by DEFRA and as result the responses would have been collected and held by this government department. From the main page on the gov.uk website, it appears that DEFRA have now published (June 2012) a summary of the responses they received following the consultation they ran in 2011. The information you require may be contained within this document.

If you cannot find the information you are looking and have any further questions, please contact DEFRA as the lead department. Their documents suggest that enquiries on this topic can be sent to:
