My honourable friend the Minister for Food, Farming and Environment (Jim Fitzpatrick) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I have today deposited copies of the report giving the proportion of UK produce supplied to government departments and the Armed Forces, as well as the proportions supplied to prisons and hospitals under contracts negotiated by HM Prison Service and NHS Supply Chain.
