To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Shutt of Greetland on 21 March (WA 121) concerning the use of taxis by the Northern Ireland Office staff in the week starting 21 February 2011, why taxis were used from Belfast residential addresses to Belfast City Airport; who used them; and who authorised their use.

Decisions on use of taxis by staff in the Northern Ireland Office are made by line managers following departmental guidance, which seeks to ensure value for money. The taxi journeys identified in my previous Answer of 21 March, Official Report, col. WAl21, from Belfast residential addresses to Belfast City Airport were all for work-related purposes.
