To ask Her Majesty's Government how much the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills or its predecessors spent on bottled water in each of the past five years.
Water at the department's offices is provided through the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), which manage the facilities of the buildings that DIUS occupies.
Neither of these organisations holds separate records of the bottled water supplied to DIUS, so the information requested is not available.
DIUS was a new department when it was created in June 2007. Records relating to the former Department of Trade and Industry and Department for Education and Skills are held by BERR and DCSF respectively.
