HC Deb 08 March 2000 vol 345 c751W
Mr. Crausby

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what percentage of documentation used by his Department is(a) made from recycled paper and (b) collected for recycling. [111601]

Yvette Cooper

The Department's environmental strategy supports the aim to achieve best environmental practice with a commitment to conserve paper. The paper used to print documentation contains 20 per cent. post-consumer de-inked fibre.

The Department has a paper re-cycling scheme but does not record the recycling of documentation in isolation.
