Departmental Alcoholic Drinks

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform 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. (196941)

My Department does not have the information requested available and to produce this information would incur disproportionate costs. However, BERR has adopted a policy to use Fairtrade products within its catering operations and includes a clause within the contract specification with its catering service provider.
