To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Barbara Follett, on 9 December 2009 (Official Report, House of Commons, col. 390W), what was the average purchase price, excluding value added tax, of a 500 sheet ream of white A4 80 gsm photocopier paper paid by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and each of its agencies in the latest period for which figures are available. [HL992]

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills currently pays £l.65p for each 500 sheet ream of white A4 80 gsm photocopier paper.

I have approached the chief executives of the Insolvency Service, Companies House, National Measurement Office and the Intellectual Property Office and they will respond directly to the noble Lord.
