To ask the Chairman of Committees what the arrangements are for the disposal of discarded textiles, such as uniforms, from the Houses of Parliament and Portcullis House.
29 October 2015
Different departments have different approaches to the disposal of discarded textiles. For example, some have contracts for the replacement of uniforms (and suppliers must reuse, dispose or recycle them securely, as appropriate); others recycle them themselves. We are working towards a more consistent approach to the recycling of discarded textiles including uniforms. Members of the House will be kept updated on these efforts.
