Departmental Visits Abroad

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many journeys have been made to (a) Paris, (b) Lille and (c) Brussels on official business by staff in her Department in the last three years. (209257)

The Department for Transport (central) and five of its agencies do not record details of journeys by destination, and could provide the information only at disproportionate cost.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency recorded 0 journeys to Paris, two to Lille and seven to Brussels over the last three years. The vehicle Certification Agency recorded seven journeys to Paris, two to Lille, and 13 to Brussels in 2007-08, but could provide information for earlier years only at disproportionate cost.
