§ Dr. Murrison
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the value is of Remploy products purchased by his Department in each year since 1995. 
§ Beverley Hughes
The value of Remploy products purchased by the Home Department since 1995 are as follows:
£ Value of Remploy products purchased 1995 41,700 1996 16,979 1997 20,207 1998 17,044 1999 1,508 2000 2,168 2001 3,406
The number of purchases have declined because of a change of focus within Remploy's activities towards production associated with education. As a result, Remploy were not able to guarantee service requirements by our main purchaser centrex.
