To ask the Chairman of Committees what the House of Lords Catering and Retail Services are doing to support National Cask Ale Week 2011.

Catering and Retail Services do not have any plans to support National Cask Ale Week in October. Cask ale was sold in the Lords' Bar until January 2011 when it was removed due to a very low volume of sales and consequential high wastage. It has been replaced by a selection of bottled real ales which will be reviewed on a regular basis.
