Volume 447: debated on Friday 16 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport pursuant to the Answer of 22 May 2006, Official Report, column 1408W, on departmental advisers, what the reason was for the increase in money spent on travel and subsistence for special advisers between (a) 2004-05 and (b) 2005-06. (77195)

The increase in travel and subsistence expenditure over the last year is because the Department gained an additional Special Adviser, making three in total, in connection with the Secretary of State's additional responsibilities for Women, humanitarian assistance and the Olympics.
