asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (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.

The total value of textile goods purchased by the Northern Ireland Office over the past 12 months was £121,481. The percentage of goods of British manufacture is 100 per cent. I see no present need to alter the existing procedures.
