Departmental Hospitality

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 6 July 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs if she will keep a separate record of the amount spent annually by her Department on alcohol for hospitality purposes. (77298)

My Department records in its accounting system all expenditure incurred for hospitality purposes in total. It does not allow for the information to be broken down specifically for alcohol expenditure.

All expenditure incurred by DCA is done so in accordance with the principles set out in Government Accounting and supported by the Department’s published internal guidance.
