To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was his programme in Bolton on Wednesday 7 November; and what was the cost of the visit including travel from London for him and his staff.

My official programme entailed a tour of Morrisons' supermarket in Bolton, which formed part of a series of visits to assess food safety requirements in retail outlets and food distribution premises, and the opening of the Best Black Pudding in Great Britain competition. The cost of the visit, including travel costs for Ministry staff, was £231·20. I also attended a party-political lunch, for which there was no cost to the Ministry.
