Caribbean: Royal Visits

Volume 473: debated on Monday 17 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to whom official gifts were presented by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall during their visit to the Caribbean in March; who selected those gifts; what the cost of each gift was; and if he will make a statement. (192700)

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave him on 5 March 2008, Official Report, column 2566W.

Gifts are selected by the royal household under guidelines set by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as the accounts for the visit have been finalised and will arrange for a copy of the letter to be placed in the Library of the House.
