Mr. P. McGrath Mr. P. McGrath
530. Mr. P. McGrath asked the Minister for Social and Family Affairs if his attention has been drawn to the campaign to have Fairtrade products widely available and used; his views on the objectives of this campaign; and if he will endeavour to have such Fairtrade approved products used in his Department.

Mr. Brennan Mr. Brennan
Mr. Brennan:My Department provides facilities for a canteen service for staff in a number of locations but is not directly involved in the provision of meals or in the running of these facilities. Arrangements for the provision of services in these facilities are put in place by voluntary committees of staff in the locations in question.
I will ensure that the issue of using Fairtrade products is brought to the attention of the various committees.
