Volume 450: debated on Monday 23 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales pursuant to the answer of 17 October 2006, Official Report, column 1118W, on ministerial visits, on how many of the 97 days which he spent in Wales on official business he stayed overnight. (96301)

The Wales Office only keeps records of those dates on which it was necessary to pay for accommodation out of public funds in furtherance of my ministerial duties. The Wales Office paid for hotel accommodation on five occasions. There is no public record of those occasions on which I stayed in my own private accommodation.
