Volume 447: debated on Thursday 15 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland pursuant to the answer of 22 May 2006, Official Report, column 1335W, on air miles, what factors he took into account when deciding not to keep a record of free air miles accrued by senior civil service servants in his Department on official business; and if he will keep such a record. (77437)

The retention of a record of air miles is not considered necessary for the effective management of the travel and subsistence regime in the Scotland Office or for the proper financial monitoring and control of budgets for this expenditure.
