Departmental Alcoholic Drinks

Volume 474: debated on Monday 31 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales at how many events held by his Department (a) wine and (b) Fairtrade wine were served in the last three years; and what assessment his Department has made of the merits of serving Fairtrade wine at future events. (196936)

In the last three years my Department has held 15 events where wine has been served, none of the wine was fairtrade.

When catering for future functions in London and Cardiff, where possible and consistent with value for money, the purchase of fairtrade wine and locally sourced wine will be considered.
