Northern Ireland Office: Taxis

Volume 706: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the cost of supplying information about the amount spent on taxis by the Northern Ireland Office in the last financial year. [HL131]

Expenditure on taxis is processed both via invoices and by reimbursed expenditure through staff expenses.

Detailed information on taxis journeys for a financial year could only be provided by manually extracting information from invoiced expenditure and staff expenses claims and excluding any personal information such as staff home addresses. The estimated cost of this work would exceed the financial threshold of £750 for answering Parliamentary Questions.
