To ask the Chairman of the Catering Committee if he will ensure that lined glasses are used in all the bars on the Parliamentary Estate. [17204]

As my hon. Friend will appreciate, my Committee has no responsibility for bars in the House of Lords or for the Sports and Social Club. However, all the glasses used in this House's Refreshment Department outlets conform with current trading standards. Should any future legislation be enacted which would require all glasses to be so lined, then I understand that the Refreshment Department would phase in such glasses accordingly.
