Between May and September 2010, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) was allocated four cars to its Ministers. One was a Jaguar XJ TDVi Sovereign, one was a Toyota Prius T3 and two were Honda Civic ES Hybrid. This was supplemented by the use of pool cars as needed.
Since September 2010, I have an allocated Jaguar XJ TDVi Sovereign, which other departmental Ministers are expected to make use of, before calling on the car pool. The majority of journeys made in pool cars since September 2010 were made in a Toyota Prius T3 or a Honda Civic ES Hybrid, with occasional journeys in other Government Car Service approved models. It is unfortunately not possible to provide a list of which ministerial journeys have been made in which models.
"the number of Ministers with allocated cars and drivers will be kept to a minimum, taking into account security and other relevant considerations. Other Ministers will be entitled to use cars from the Government Car Service Pool as needed".
The Ministerial Code is available on the Cabinet Office website.
