HC Deb 08 July 2002 vol 388 c748W
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. [63823]

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.
