Fairtrade Initiative

Mr. Weir: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will take steps to promote Fairtrade Fortnight 2008 among staff in his Department; and if he will make a statement. [189497]

Mr. Woodward: The Government are committed to improving market access for producers in developing countries through increased participation in fair and sustainable supply chains. Each Government Department is responsible for making its own decisions on such products, against the background of the Government’s value for money policy, the EC procurement rules and the Department’s objectives.

I have ensured that staff with responsibility for purchasing have been made aware of Fairtrade Fortnight and information has been put on our departmental intranet to advise all staff. My Department does use a range of Fairtrade produce.

Telephone Tapping

Lady Hermon: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has to permit the use of wiretap evidence in Northern Ireland courts. [189732]

Mr. Woodward: My objective is to include Northern Ireland in the implementation of the Chilcot recommendations wherever possible. To that end, my Department will be playing a full role in the further work that the Prime Minister has asked to be done.
