To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, which overseas trips Ministers of his Department have made since July 2016; and what were the costs of each such trip.
Staff at the Department for International Trade are located across more than one hundred countries and as we prepare to leave the EU, our ministers and Department for International Trade staff regularly travel overseas to build relationships with key global trading partners.
This includes through the 14 trade working groups we have set up across 21 countries to advance the UK's trade and investment relationships and scope out the potential for future free trade agreements.
Details of visits made by my Ministerial colleagues and I are published on the Gov.UK website and can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications?departments%5B%5D=department-for-international-trade&publication_type=transparency-data
All Ministerial journeys adhere to Cabinet Office rules on international travel.
