Drinks Sales (2016)

Request

The annual consumption figures of gin and vodka from the parliamentary estate.

 

Response

You asked for the annual consumption figures of gin and vodka from the parliamentary estate.  We have interpreted this as a request for the total number of bottles of gin and vodka sold in the last financial year.

Please note that our response only deals with alcoholic drink sales in catering and retail venues for which the House of Commons is responsible. Some bars on the parliamentary estate are the responsibility of the House of Lords, which is a separate public authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act, therefore, you may wish to consider forwarding your request to them. 

This information is held by the House of Commons.  A total of 505 bottles of gin and 85 bottles of vodka were sold from House of Commons venues in the last financial year (from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016).
