HC Deb 18 May 2004 vol 421 c937W
Michael Fabricant

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what percentage of the(a) crockery, (b) cutlery and (c) glassware procured by his Department over the last five years is of British or Northern Ireland manufacture. [170805]

Mr. Pearson

As there is no requirement on departments to hold records on the country of origin of crockery, cutlery or glassware the information requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
