The data requested are not held centrally. However, it should be noted that all government departments have been encouraged to replace bought-in bottled water with tap water for all meetings. Furthermore, with regards to the use of water coolers, government sustainability policy encourages public sector organisations to change arrangements from bottled water coolers to plumbed-in mains fed provision so that tap water can be used where possible.
