Volume 454: debated on Thursday 14 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was spent by her Department and its predecessors on furniture made by British firms in each year since 2000. (105146)

The Department of Communities and Local Government furniture procurement strategy is to use the Office of Government Commerce Buying Solutions’ framework contracts. There is no mechanism within the framework to capture the country of origin of these goods. The extraction of this information would be at disproportionate cost.
