Departmental Hospitality

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will keep a separate total for the annual amount spent on alcohol for hospitality purposes in each Department in Northern Ireland, including his Office. (77313)

There are no plans to separately record expenditure on alcohol at this time. However, all Departments separately monitor spend on hospitality generally in accordance with principles set out by HM Treasury and in line with the practicality of financial coding.
