Drinking Water

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform pursuant to the answer of 3 March 2008, Official Report, column 2235W, on mineral waters, how much bottled water was purchased by his Department’s contracted service provider. (196778)

During the last 12-month period, my Department’s contracted service provider has purchased 43,680 litres of bottled mineral water, at a cost of £16,161.60. However, since November 2007, all mineral water for official functions, meetings, etc. is provided via a table water bottling system and no pre-packaged water is provided.
