Departmental Expenditure

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much was spent by his Department on food and alcohol for its staff working out of office in each year since 2001-02. (91902)

Amounts spent annually on food and alcohol for HM Treasury staff working out of the office are not recorded separately from other subsistence costs and could be disaggregated only at disproportionate cost.

Subsistence costs are incurred in accordance with the rules set out in the “Civil Service Management Code” as well as the Treasury’s internal guidance.
