Departmental Food

Volume 508: debated on Monday 22 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will take steps to ensure that the meat and dairy products procured by his Department and its non-departmental bodies are free range or produced to standards equivalent to those of the RSPCA Freedom Food scheme. (323067)

The Department has no canteen facilities which use meat or fresh dairy products. We advise our non-departmental public bodies on best practice in food procurement, drawing on relevant guidance provided by DEFRA and the Office of Government Commerce.
