I refer the hon. Member to the answers I gave to Sammy Wilson on 7 January 2010, Hansard, columns 630-31W, and Mr. Weir on 21 January 2010, Hansard, column 468W.

Since 1999 the Government have published on an annual basis a list of all overseas visits by Cabinet Ministers costing in excess of £500, as well as the total cost of all ministerial travel overseas. From 2007-08 the list was extended to include all Ministers. The list also provides information on the number of officials who accompany Ministers. Copies are available in the Libraries of the House. Information for 2009-10 will be published as soon as the information is available.
