To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer who holds records on the use of the Expotel hotel booking service for the public sector, as appointed to the OGCbuying.solutions framework; and which public sector bodies use this service. (258372)

OGCbuying.solutions hold details of usage of the framework by all customer Departments at summary level. Typical data held is non-personal information such as how many trips and the cost of trips within a given period.

Individual public sector Departments hold data on their use of the contract in more detail to enable them to manage spend in this area as well as comply with health and safety requirements and environmental considerations. Data held at a public sector departmental level is typically who has travelled, the method of travel and where an individual is staying.
