Departmental Travel

Volume 494: debated on Friday 19 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much her Department spent on tickets for (a) air and (b) rail travel for (i) Ministers, (ii) special advisers and (iii) civil servants in her Department which were not used in each of the last three years. (280010)

Unfortunately, the data requested are not held centrally by the Department and to gather them could be achieved only at a disproportionate cost.

All expenditure is incurred in accordance with the principles of Managing Public Money and the Treasury handbook on Regularity and Propriety.
