Foreign Travel

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much was spent on foreign travel by his Department in each of the last eight years. (76067)

I refer to the answer I gave on 15 December 2005, Official Report, column 2272W to the hon. Member for Southend, West (Mr. Amess). In 2005-06, the cost of foreign travel, including subsistence, for the Treasury was £1,741,000. All travel is undertaken in accordance with the rules set out in the “Ministerial Code”, the “Civil Service Management Code” and the “Code of Conduct for Special Advisers”.
