To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many vending machines in his Department's premises contain snack foods that are high in calories and low in nutritional value.

holding answer 4 July 2013

There are seven vending machines on Cabinet Office premises. The machines offer a variety of drinks and snacks. Five of the machines, which are on the London estate, are owned and managed by our Facilities Management provider. The remaining two, in Roseberry Court, Norwich, are owned and managed by a local vending machine provider.

In both locations, the arrangements were signed under the previous Government.

I do not think asking civil servants to analyse the nutritional contents of the drinks and snacks on offer is an appropriate use of public funds.
