Departments: Paper

Volume 459: debated on Tuesday 1 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what percentage of paper used (a) for photocopying and (b) in printed publications by his Department was from recycled sources in each of the last three years. (134061)

This information is not recorded and therefore it could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

The NIO policy is to use paper for photocopying, printing and for publications that is derived from at least 70 per cent. post consumer waste. Currently we purchase office paper that is derived from 100 per cent. post consumer waste.
