A specific policy on this might be best avoided as some tips (e.g. in dormant sites for gritstone) are incredibly sensitive and use of virgin rock from more sustainable locations would be preferable. The same arguments applies even more forcibly to a spatial mapping approach unless a very clear set of filters was applied to exclude unsustainable locations.
