Departmental Political Activities

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 3 November 2009, Official Report, column 804W, on party conferences, how much each of his Department’s non-departmental public bodies spent sending representatives to attend each of the party political conferences. (298929)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 3 November 2009, Official Report, column 804W. The actual cost of such attendance is a matter for the non-departmental public bodies concerned and officials have not been able to access the information requested, accurately and consistently for all four bodies, in the time available. I will ask the relevant bodies to write to you with this information.
