Hotels

Volume 506: debated on Friday 5 March 2010

To ask the Solicitor-General pursuant to the answer to hon. Member for Ruislip Northwood of 9 February 2010, Official Report, column 861W, on hotels, at which hotels graded five star or above bookings were made; for what (a) dates and (b) purposes the bookings were made; and whether the bookings were made on behalf of (i) Ministers and (ii) civil servants. (320911)

The following five star hotels were booked for civil servants carrying out official duties. SFO policy is that hotel expenditure should meet the SFO hotel booking policy which compares favourably with wider Government service policies. Hotels with five star ratings have only been selected in exceptional circumstances where other lower ratings were not available or suitable. The geographical location of the hotels has not been specified because all the bookings related to investigations conducted by the Serious Fraud Office into possible criminal activity.
