HC Deb 29 February 2000 vol 345 c264W
Mr. Yeo

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if all food served at his Department's official functions meets the standards of production required of domestic producers. [109778]

Mr. Stringer

My Department and its agencies have offices, and hold official functions, in numerous locations in different parts of the country. Food is obtained from a range of professional catering undertakings appropriate to each occasion. It would be impracticable to establish that all such food meets the criteria of domestic production.
