§ Mr. Crausby
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what percentage of documentation used by his Department is(a) made from recycled paper and (b) collected for recycling. 
§ Dr. Reid
No information is currently collected on the proportion of recycled paper used by my Department. Arrangements are in place in buildings occupied by the Department for the collection and recycling of much of the waste paper produced.
My Department will be developing a strategy for waste management based on the three "Rs", with "Recovery" (i.e. recycling, composting and energy recovery) following "Reduce" and "Re-use" as the preferred options for reducing waste sent to landfill.
