To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how much timber and timber products were procured by his Department originating from independently verified legal and sustainable sources or from a licensed FLEGT partner in each of the last five years; and at what cost. (213753)

All timber and timber products procured by my Department over the last five years have come from sustainable sources. The amount procured and the cost could only be established at disproportionate cost. The Scotland Office forms part of the Ministry of Justice; the Ministry of Justice does not keep separate records for the timber and timber products used in that part of its estate.
