To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what percentage of paper for printed publications used by the Department in 2002–03 was from recycled sources; and how much post-consumer waste this paper contained.

Mr. Gareth Thomas:

The Department for International Development does not hold this information centrally, and due to disproportionate cost we cannot supply this information.

However, DFID routinely requires that the designers and printers under contract to produce DFID publications source paper that has a minimum of 75 per cent. recycled content.
