Departmental Official Cars

Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many of the flag vehicles his Department has procured for official use (a) in the UK and (b) at diplomatic posts overseas were not made in Britain. (277349)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office currently operates no flag vehicles for official use in the UK and 172 overseas. It is not possible to ascertain how many of these vehicles were not made in Britain without incurring disproportionate cost as records detailing the country of manufacture are not held centrally.
