Departmental Conferences/Training Courses

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) which conferences held overseas have been attended by civil servants based in his Department in the last three years; and what the cost to the public purse was of such attendance at each conference; (305874)

(2) how many overseas training courses were attended by his Department's civil servants in the latest period for which figures are available; how many civil servants attended each course; and what the total cost to the public purse was of each course.

The Treasury does not hold a central record of attendances at training courses or conferences held overseas and the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
