To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the case brought by the Attorney General against Lindis Percy for alleged trespass, who paid for the return flight from Nevada of the key US military witness, Kyler Sherman Brown; and whether any other persons from the United States had travel costs paid to attend this case.

Senior Airman Brown was flown back from the United States to give evidence. All costs of flight and overnight accommodation were met by the United States Air Force (USAF). There were accordingly no additional costs incurred by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in calling him as a witness. Given the occupations, nationalities and location of the other witnesses called, no travel expenses were paid by the CPS.
