Food: Pork and Bacon

Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 4 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much British pork and bacon has been publicly procured by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in each year from 2003 to 2007; and how much was procured in the first six months of 2008. [HL5828]

The information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost. I refer the noble Baroness to the report published on the Public Sector Food Procurement Initiative, which is available on Defra's website.

Defra again proposes to publish data by the end of 2008 on the proportion of domestically produced food purchased by departments.
