House of Lords: Water

Volume 700: debated on Thursday 20 March 2008

asked the Chairman of Committees:

Whether, given the quality of tap water and the financial and environmental cost of bottled water, he will recommend that the House provides only tap water. [HL2495]

The Administration and Works Committee agreed at its meeting on 18 March that work should be undertaken to examine the feasibility of installing an on-site facility for the bottling of mains water. The Committee will consider the output of this work in due course.

Potable tap water is available in all Lords refreshment outlets. Potable tap water points are also installed on every floor of Fielden House and 2 Millbank, and in a number of corridors and offices within the Palace.
