Since July 2002, meeting refreshments for the Treasury have been supplied by the PFI contractor, Exchequer Partnerships. Meeting refreshments include tea, coffee, mineral water and biscuits. The costs for 2002–03 (July to 31 March) were £121,000, and the costs for 2003–04 were £188,000. It is not possible to identify separate costs for tea or biscuits, and information in respect of the earlier years could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
