holding answer 23 March 2005
On Thursday 17 March, I attended Mind's annual conference in Harrogate, opened York hospitals national health service trust's renal satellite unit at Harrogate general hospital, visited Kippax North junior and infant school in Kippax to see the impact of the Government's healthy schools programme and visited Undercliffe surgery in Batley. All the duties were carried out in an official capacity.
As is usual on official visits, I was accompanied to all the engagements by an official from my ministerial private office and by one of the Department's press officers. A senior official from the Department's mental health team attended Mind's conference.
The total cost of travel, including for those officials accompanying me, was £898.40.
