Departmental Expenditure

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs how much her Department spent on organising and hosting conferences in the last 12 months. (93085)

It is not possible to provide details of the amount spent by the Department on organising and hosting conferences in the last 12 months as this information is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs how much her Department spent on taxis in the last 12 months. (93121)

It is not possible to list the costs spent on taxis by the Department in the last 12 months without incurring disproportionate costs as the expenditure is not separately identifiable within the Department's accounts.

All Civil Service travel is undertaken in accordance with the rules set out in the “Ministerial Code”, “Travel by Ministers” and the “Civil Service Management Code”, copies of which are available in the Library of the House.
