To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many overseas visits in an official capacity have been carried out by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State in his Department, the hon. Member for Keighley, since March 2014; and what the (a) location, (b) date, (c) cost and (d) purpose was of each such visit.
Transparency data published on the Department’s website provides details of overseas visits undertaken by Ministers in connection with their official duties.
The latest published quarterly return provides information from January to March 2014. In advance of publication of the latest returns I can confirm I have made no overseas visits in an official capacity as Parliamentary under Secretary for Communities and Local Government.
