MOT Computerisation Project

Volume 450: debated on Friday 20 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the (a) venue, (b) meal, (c) entertainment, (d) travel and subsistence and (e) other costs were of the launch celebrations of the MOT Computerisation project held on the SS Great Britain in Bristol; and from where the costs were provided. (94547)

The MOT Computerisation launch held at the SS Great Britain was hosted by Siemens Business Services. We do not, therefore, hold records in relation to the cost of the venue, meal, entertainment or other costs.

The travel and subsistence data held by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency indicate that claims of approximately £680.00 were submitted which mention the SS Great Britain event. These costs may not solely be attributed to the event, however, as staff may have needed travel or accommodation to attend other work related events at the time.
