In addition to the bottled water highlighted in Table 1, there are other purchases of water throughout the Northern Ireland Assembly. For example, glass bottles of water (sparkling and still) are requested on a daily basis at Committee meetings, on a sale or return arrangement. From June 2007 to February 2008 inclusive, a total of 7177 bottles of water (still and sparkling) were used by Committees, at a cost of £1794.25 (0.25p per bottle). An alternative to bottled water is available for Committees, in the form of tap water provided in large jugs.
