Departmental Air Travel

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how much the Leader of the House’s Office spent on (a) first class and (b) business class flights in the last 12 months. (317270)

Provision of a complete and accurate response would require a full interrogation of the corporate travel contract management information, Government Procurement Card (GPC) records and expenses claims for the period requested. This would therefore incur disproportionate costs.

However, since 1999, the Government have published a list of all overseas travel by Cabinet Ministers costing over £500. Information for the financial year 2008-09 was published on 16 July 2009, Official Report, column 66-70WS. All travel by Ministers is undertaken in accordance with the Ministerial Code.
