To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs at which functions during the last year hospitality expenditure was incurred by his Department. (162797)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Minister for Europe on 18 October 2007, Official Report, column 1314W.

Further to that answer, Government Hospitality, Protocol Directorate, managed 199 official functions between November 2006 and October 2007.
