Foreign Visits

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what foreign visits have been undertaken by Office of Government Commerce staff on official business in the last 12 months; what the total cost was of each visit; and how much of that sum was accounted for by (a) travel expenses, (b) expenses claimed and (c) accommodation in each case. (105571)

OGC staff have undertaken a total of 85 overseas trips in the last 12 months, from December 2005 to December 2006, at a total cost to OGC of £71,000. That total has been broken down into travel costs and subsistence costs below, but to break down the cost into individual visits could be done only at disproportionate costs.
