[Official Report, 19 October 2009, Vol. 497, c. 1261W.]

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.
