The Office of the Leader of the House of Commons spent £1,872.72 on the provision of plants and flowers during the 2007-08 financial year.

Following a machinery of government change, information prior to 2007-08 is available only at disproportionate cost.

A decision was taken in January 2009 to terminate the contract for plants and flowers at the earliest possible opportunity.
