Paragraph 4.3.5 of the Civil Service Management Code sets out the rules on the registration of hospitality. The Government are committed to publishing an annual list of hospitality received by members of departmental boards. The first list for 2007 will be published as soon as it is ready after the end of the current calendar year.
For previous years the information requested is not held centrally, but all Foreign and Commonwealth Office Board members are clear that all hospitality accepted must adhere to Diplomatic Service Regulations No. 4 which follows paragraph 4.3.5 of the Civil Service Management Code.
