The Department for Innovation Universities and Skills was created in June 2007. The following information relates to the period since then.
Parking fines and speeding tickets incurred by DIUS staff when using vehicles for official business are not met by the public purse.
The Department also uses vehicles provided by the Government Car and Despatch Agency, which is the responsibility of my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Transport. I refer to the answer in respect of that agency given by my right hon. Friend on 5 February 2008.
