Letter of correction from Phil Hope:
An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Burstow) on 12 October 2009. Unfortunately the final figure for 2008-09 was incorrect.
The correct answer should have been: (293333)
The Department has spent the following on first-class travel.
£ 2006-07 4,640,501.02 2007-08 4,977,335.59 2008-09 4,865,405.72
It should be noted that the above figures represent travel booked through the central booking system which constitutes the vast majority of how travel is booked and paid for.
