Official Cars

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many cars run by his Department were manufactured (a) in the UK and (b) abroad. (104817)

DFID HQ uses cars supplied by the Government Car and Despatch Agency. Information on cars operated by the Government Car and Despatch Agency is available on page 14 of its Annual Report and Accounts 2005-06, copies of which are available in the Library for the reference of Members.

DFID’s overseas offices do run cars, but no central record is held of their country of manufacture. All our vehicles are procured through processes designed to ensure value for money through open, untied competition.
