The total budget allocated to our Diplomatic Missions in EU member states is £91.01 million for 2008-09, of which £1.93 million has been allocated for entertainment. This is a reduction in real terms from a budget of £86.28 million in 2007-08 but includes an increase of £11.5 million to compensate for exchange rate and inflationary pressures.
