Departments: Taxis

Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department spent on taxis in 2006-07. (139999)

Use of a taxi at the Treasury's expense is not an entitlement and official journeys should wherever possible be made on public transport. However, when there is no reasonable and cost-effective alternative, for example when travelling home after working late into the night, the Treasury may justify the use of a taxi. Expenditure in 2006-07 was £188,000.
