To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what proportion of office supplies purchased by his Department were recycled products in the latest period for which figures are available. (275341)

The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) does not record specific information on recycled products although those from sustainable sources are highlighted in our catalogue of office supplies. The catalogue is made available to all parts of the Department and staff are encouraged to order products from sustainable sources.

MOJ Procurement currently have 1,273 core products on catalogue of which, 18 per cent. are sustainable. This 18 per cent., however, equates to 26 per cent. of the contract value.
