The information held on the Department's business management system is as shown in the following table. Due to the procedures employed by the Department which score expenditure on the system in the month in which an invoice is processed and paid, the figures do not necessarily relate to the costs incurred in the months in question. The figures show the total spend by Ministers' private offices on hospitality and catering and this will typically include purchases of teas, coffees, lunches and refreshments. The system does not have the facility to report on whether these purchases were for specific events or meetings.
