Bottling it ...

"SCOTTISH ministers have been condemned by environmental campaigners for spending almost £200,000 a year on bottled water while insisting that Scottish Water should remain in public ownership. Figures obtained by The Sunday Times have revealed that ministers, staff and guests consumed more than 460,000 litres of bottled water last year despite assurances that Scottish tap water is among the best in the world."

The recent announcement by the Scottish Government that it was to stop using bottled water is of course totally unrelated to the fact that the Sunday Times was pursuing this information using Freedom of Information requests. The publication of the story has already had an effect.

Will Glasgow City Council follow their lead?
