The report follows research by the campaigning group into local and national government departments’ use of bottled water. Independent watchdogs, such as the Food Standards Agency, were also consulted as part of the research.

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) is the only Government department that has already banned the use of bottled water.
