star this property answer text <p>The process for tabling oral questions was considered in detail in the 2012-13 session. In response to concerns raised about the current “first-come-first-served” system - including a concern about the requirement to queue raised by my Noble Friend, Lady Sharples - the Procedure Committee proposed the introduction of a ballot in its place (Procedure Committee, 3rd Report, Session 2012-13). The House remitted the issue back to the Procedure Committee for further consideration (HL Deb 9 Jan 2013, cols 145-172). <br><br>That further review did not identify a clear consensus as to whether a ballot was preferred to the “first-come-first-served” system (see Procedure Committee, 5th Report, Session 2012-13; see also HL Deb 24 April 2013, cols 1406-1417). <br><br>I know that strong views persist on both sides of the argument about this issue. I will write to the Chairman of the Procedure Committee on my Noble Friend’s behalf to suggest that the matter might be discussed at a future meeting of the Procedure Committee.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Catering and Retail Services seeks to reduce the amount of food waste generated through careful menu management and the use, where appropriate, of pre-prepared ingredients. Food waste is controlled in each outlet through reuse in other outlets. Approximately 50% of unsold prepared food products are either recycled through other outlets or reused (subject to food safety procedures). Typical examples of this include roast beef, chicken or baked ham being used for cold meat platters or as ingredients for other dishes, and vegetables being used as ingredients for soups.</p><p> </p><p>The estimated food waste generated by House of Lords outlets each month for the year 2013–14 is shown in the table below.</p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> Month</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total cost of waste (£)</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p>April 2013</p></td><td><p>2,183.99</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>May 2013</p></td><td><p>2,608.50</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>June 2013</p></td><td><p>3,933.41</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>July 2013</p></td><td><p>5,381.78</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>August/September 2013</p></td><td><p>1,775.02</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>October 2013</p></td><td><p>4,370.16</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>November 2013</p></td><td><p>4,507.32</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>December 2013</p></td><td><p>3,545.60</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>January 2014</p></td><td><p>5,416.39</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>February 2014</p></td><td><p>4,787.02</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p>March 2014</p></td><td><p>6,359.75</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Total</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>44,868.95</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The above figures represent prepared unsold food at cost value that cannot be reused or recycled. To put this into perspective, total food waste for the period above is 4.5% of total food consumption. The highest proportion of food waste is from the cafeterias and self service outlets.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Unsold food waste is either bagged or passed through a commercial waste disposal unit which extracts most of the water content, resulting in a dry mass which is bagged. The food waste is collected daily by a waste contractor and sent to a local facility for anaerobic digestion. No food waste produced in the House of Lords is sent to landfill.</p>
