Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what his Department's policy is on the selection of (a) real and (b) artificial Christmas trees for his Department's festive decorations; and how real trees are disposed of. (173533)

A 10ft fully decorated tree was hired for our Head Office building in London and was taken away after the festive season to be shredded and recycled. The three remaining buildings occupied by the Department all used existing artificial trees.
