Fair Trade Initiative

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will take steps to promote Fair Trade Fortnight 2008 among staff within her Department; and if she will make a statement. (189496)

Communities and Local Government is taking various steps to promote Fairtrade Fortnight 2008 in its headquarter buildings. Over the next two weeks, our catering supplier is providing an increased range of Fairtrade products, including various snacks and drinks. A wider range of Fairtrade teas and coffees is also being offered in our vending machines. We are advertising the fortnight and new products with various posters in our staff restaurants.

This is in addition to the Fairtrade products that are normally supplied within our buildings.
