HC Deb 02 July 2003 vol 408 c309W
Andrew George

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proportion of foodstuffs and drinks provided by the Government Hospitality Section of the Conference and Visits Group was sourced from(a) the UK, (b) the EU, (c) third countries, (d) organic sources and (e) fair trade sources in each of the last five years. [122844]

Mr. Rammell

Government Hospitality (GH) Section does not record the origin of food and drink served at the events for which it is responsible. However, Government Hospitality maintains a policy of encouraging all its suppliers to make maximum use of fresh British seasonal produce. English and Welsh wines are also stocked in the Government wine cellar, for which GH is responsible.
