To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what percentage of the(a) crockery, (b) cutlery and (c) glassware procured by his Department over the last five years is of British manufacture. [170808]

This Department does not procure the items specified for its staff canteens or catering facilities because these services are delivered by our contractor for the provision of estate and property services. Information on the country of manufacture of these items procured for other purposes is not collected centrally.
