As set out in the Ministerial Code, Departments publish, at least quarterly, details of all travel overseas by Ministers. I refer the hon. Member to the Official Report of
My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary travels in business class on scheduled flights. Subject to operational requirements, officials and advisers travelling with him normally travel in the same class. If the flight is under five hours, one official normally travels in business with him, and the rest in economy. By exception the Foreign Secretary travels on charter flights only when a scheduled service is not available or when the requirements of official or parliamentary business or security considerations preclude the journey being made by a scheduled service.
All expenditure occurred on official travel is kept under rigorous scrutiny to ensure value for money and effectiveness. Travel is undertaken in accordance with the Ministerial code and Civil Service Management code.
