Mineral Waters

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many litres of bottled water were purchased by his Department and its predecessor in each of the last three years; and if he will make a statement. (191251)

My Department does not hold central records of the number of litres of bottled water purchased over the past three years. Such information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

In response to the Act on CO2 Campaign the Ministry of Justice took steps in August 2007 to reduce its use of bottled water in meetings, and continues to look at further reductions in the use of bottled water where it is practicable to do so.
