Question S1W-34539

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S1W-1904 by Mr Jack McConnell on 28 February 2000, what progress has been made towards the hosting of a promotional event for fair trade suppliers.

This year, from 10 to 14 March (during the second week of Fairtrade fortnight) each Executive staff restaurant will have a promotional stall allowing staff to sample Fairtrade Mark products. Also, posters promoting fair trade products are being prominently displayed in staff restaurants. The Executive has also taken other steps to help support Fairtrade labelled products. For example, by the end of April 2003 each staff restaurant will offer staff a choice of fairtrade tea and coffee. We are also working with our catering contractor to ensure that, in future, tea and coffee served at official meetings will carry a recognised fairtrade label.
