Refreshments for Christmas celebrations were funded by ministers and/or officials - and were not at taxpayers' expense. The Cabinet Office has paid £80.50 for decorations and a central Christmas tree in the main building of 70 Whitehall. Cabinet Office also contributed towards the cost of the Christmas tree for the building it shares with HM Treasury. In addition, my office purchased at personal expense a discounted Christmas tree from Argos.
