Someone has used Freedom of Information website to ask Leeds City Council, how much they spend on bottled water.

The reply states:
"In the financial year 2008/09, Leeds City Council spent £76,600 on bottled water. This represents a significant reduction on the level of expenditure incurred in previous years and reflects the impact of the Council’s efforts to minimise its consumption of bottled water, wherever practical. "

Absolutely shocking!
