The Department for Transport (central) made 2,328 bookings for overnight accommodation through Expotel in 2008-09, the Highways Agency made 2,937 and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency made 145. In each case bookings made by other means are not recorded centrally so the information defining Expotel bookings as a proportion of the total could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

In the same period the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) made 187 bookings through Expotel, amounting to 0.9 per cent. of the DSA total, and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) made 4,998 such bookings representing 94.08 per cent. of the DVLA total.

The Government Car and Despatch Agency, the Vehicle Certification Agency and the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency could provide this information only at disproportionate cost.
