This information is not immediately available, and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. However, since 1999 the Government have published an annual list of all visits overseas undertaken by Cabinet Ministers costing £500 or more during each financial year. Where non-scheduled aircraft are used this is shown in the list. Information for 2005-06 was published on 24 July 2006 with copies of the lists available in the Library of the House.

All Departmental travel is undertaken in accordance with appropriate rules set out for Ministers and staff.
