A large number of recommendations made by the consultant have been implemented. These include a series of "quick wins" and operational improvements, such as simplification of menus, the removal of loss-making vending machines and improvements to purchasing and stock control processes. The Refreshment Committee has also conducted the price review against external benchmarks which the consultant recommended, and prices across the House have recently been increased as a result. Finally, the Refreshment Committee is in the process of considering what changes might be made to the various refreshment outlets in response to the consultant's report. Any major proposed changes which ensue will be communicated to Members in a report to the House by the Refreshment Committee.
