Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether mechanisms are in place to monitor the extent to which his Department’s (a) internal and (b) external (i) correspondence and (ii) distribution of publications is carried out electronically. (199186)

The Department does not have any mechanisms to undertake monitoring of the extent of electronic correspondence (internal or external) or publication distribution. However, the Department and its agencies are taking steps to reduce paper usage by encouraging the take-up of electronic channels, formats and technology wherever possible.
