Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how much timber and how many timber products were procured by his Department originating from independently verified legal and sustainable sources or from a licensed FLEGT partner since its establishment; and at what cost. (213741)

Details of exactly how much timber and how many timber products were procured and precise amounts of expenditure thereon could be isolated from wider expenditure on office fixture, furniture and other items only at disproportionate cost. However, I can confirm that all timber, including that in all the timber-based products procured for DIUS, originated from legal and sustainable sources. There are no FLEGT licence schemes in place as yet.
