To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he has entertained Labour hon. Members at public expense in the last 12 months; and at what cost. [106398]

As Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, I have not specifically entertained any Labour hon. Members at public expense. Ministers and parliamentary private secretaries are fed in their official capacity. I have, however, included hon. Members on the guest list for various events over the last 12 months. More detailed information on the individual cost of entertaining hon. Members as part of those events is not held centrally, and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
