Written Questions: Government Responses

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he expects to answer question (a) 181598 and (b) 181530, on departmental travel, tabled on 21 January 2008 by the hon. Member for Taunton; and what the reason for the time taken to respond is. (191243)

Questions (a) 181598 and (b) 181530 were both answered today.

Each of these questions requested details of departmental travel including travel outside of the United Kingdom. To ensure accuracy in the answers, extensive cross-referencing was required between different parts of the Department, which proved to be more time consuming than originally expected.
