To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what was the estimated cost of the trooping the colour to public funds in the current year; how many visitors from home and overseas are estimated to have watched the parade; and if he will make a statement.

No additional costs were incurred for the men and horses of the Household Division, as they are already funded. Other costs associated with trooping the colour could only be provided at disproportionate cost.Although it is not possible to establish the exact number of visitors who watched the Trooping the Colour this year, 30,400 tickets were sold for the two rehearsals and the actual parade.
