Catering sales - Confectionery (2017)

Request

Please provide by a monthly breakdown for 2017 from January 1st, the totals spent in Members only bars on confectionery of all types (hot, cold, etc)

Additionally to the above could you also list the totals in the same way for any other retail outlets across the estate and the top 10 items sold.

 

 

Response

This information is not held by the House of Commons.  The only Members-only bar is the Members’ Smoking Room (a historical name only, no smoking is permitted in this venue).  No hot or cold confectionery is sold in the Members’ Smoking Room.

You have also asked for the same breakdown of confectionery sales for any other catering venues across the estate, as well as the top 10 items sold.  This information is held by the House of Commons.

Please also note that the customers who use these venues include around 15,500 pass-holders (MPs’ staff, House staff, civil servants, contractors, Peers, members of the Press Gallery, etc., as well as MPs). Our main customer base also includes over a million non-pass holding visitors to Parliament. Food and drink prices are regularly reviewed and set at levels benchmarked against similar outlets outside of Parliament.
