Departmental Official Hospitality

Volume 493: debated on Friday 12 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much his Department has spent on (a) conference services and (b) banqueting services in each of the last five years. (274500)

The Northern Ireland Office (NIO) records expenditure for conferences and banquets under the description of hospitality or catering. Due to the high volume of transactions within these expenditure areas it would be possible to extract the costs requested only at disproportionate cost.
