Government Departments: Bottled Water

Volume 710: debated on Monday 18 May 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how much the Ministry of Justice or its predecessors spent on bottled water in each of the past five years. [HL3566]

The data requested are not held centrally. However, it should be noted that all government departments have been encouraged to replace bought-in bottled water with tap water for all meetings. Furthermore, with regards to the use of water coolers, government sustainability policy encourages public sector organisations to change arrangements from bottled water coolers to plumbed-in mains fed provision so that tap water can be used where possible.
