To ask the Prime Minister (1) how many miles (a) Ministers and (b) officials in his Office have travelled by taxi in the course of their official duties in each year since 1997; and at what cost to the public purse in each such year; (302705)

(2) on what date he last travelled by (a) bus and (b) taxi in the course of his official duties.

This information is not held in the format requested. Ministers, my officials and I travel making the most efficient and cost-effective arrangements. My travel arrangements are in accordance with the arrangements for official travel set out in chapter 10 of the “Ministerial Code”, and the accompanying guidance document, “Travel by Ministers”.
