HC Deb 10 May 1999 vol 331 c38W
Ms Ward

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to introduce fair trade products at(a) meetings, (b) events and (c) catering facilities within his Department. [82866]

Mr. Straw

In purchasing goods and services for these and other purposes, my Department takes full account of the Government's policy of seeking value for money, having due regard to propriety and regularity. However, my Department has undertaken a review of the implications of offering Fair Trade products and will be issuing guidance on their use in the near future.
