[holding answer 20 July 2009]: The travel and subsistence costs incurred by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and its agency body, the Royal Parks Agency in the 12-month period June 2008 to the end of May 2009 are as follows:
£ DCMS 444,677 Royal Parks Agency 28,403
Royal Parks Agency
In addition, the Department also makes use of the Government Car Service for general ministerial duties, details of which were published in a written ministerial statement on 16 July 2009, Official Report, column 80WS.
Neither DCMS or RPA are able to separate travel costs from subsistence costs without incurring disproportionate costs.
