Northern Ireland Office: Travel

Volume 708: debated on Thursday 26 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how much was paid by the Northern Ireland Office during the first four weeks of the 2007–08 financial year for officials to travel between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. [HL1467]

Costs relating to staff travel between Northern Ireland and Great Britain are held in a variety of expenditure codes within the travel heading. As these codes show costs for all travel, including travel within Northern Ireland, the isolation of costs for journeys between Northern Ireland and Great Britain would involve a manual investigation of payments. The cost of this exercise would be higher than the disproportionate cost threshold of £750.
