Written answers (Question to Communications)

My Department purchases bottled water in two ways - from the in-house caterers, when requested, for meetings and under an Office of Government Procurement contract for a single bottle fed water dispenser, which is in the lobby in my Department's head quarters on Adelaide Road, Dublin. The total cost for the period 1st January to 30th October 2019 was €918.

My Department does not purchase disposable coffee cups.
