§ Ms Ruddock
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if she will make a statement on progress in establishing an office waste minimisation strategy for her Department, indicating the targets set. 
§ Mr. Robin Squire
The former Education and Employment Departments both had established "green housekeeping" strategies consistent with their business needs. Waste minimisation forms an important part of the DFEE integrated strategy, but specific targets have not been set.
