To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what measures she has put in place to ensure that her Department meets the quick win targets set by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to ensure that all paper for printed publications bought by the Department is 60 per cent. recycled, of which a minimum is 75 per cent. post-consumer waste.

Mr. Caborn

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 19 April 2004,Official Report, columns 243–44W. DCMS procures 100 per cent. recycled paper for in excess of 60 per cent. of paper for printed publications, but it has not been possible to ascertain the percentage of post consumer waste content.
