Bottled water (2018)


How much the House Of Common spend on plastic water bottles for Parliamentary business meetings between 1st January 2018 -  1st December 2018?



This information is held by the House of Commons. There is no cost to the House in purchasing water in plastic bottles because water is not provided in plastic bottles in the Chamber, committee rooms or other meeting rooms of the House. Instead, water carafes and reusable glass bottles replenished from drinking water taps are available in these locations.
It may also help you to know that, since May 2018, Parliament has taken many other positive steps to reduce the use of single use plastic items within our organisation.  Further details of this can be found on our parliamentary pages:
