asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what is the total value of textile goods purchased by his Department during the past 12 months;(2) what percentage of textile goods, over the last 12 months, has been purchased from British manufacturers by his Department;(3) if he will instruct his Department to purchase all future textile requirements from British manufacturers.

No separate figures are available for purchase of textile goods, but purchases are estimated at under £1 million. All purchases were made through other Departments or from British sources, but there could be circumstances in which purchases from other sources might be justifiable.
