129270 - Northern Ireland Office: Fairtrade Initiative (Answered)

Chris Ruane
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what proportion of his Department's spend on day-to-day goods comprised fair trade products in each of the last eight years.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The Northern Ireland Office is fully committed to ethical procurement; however, we are unable to quantify what proportion of our annual spend relates to fair trade products over the requested period.
