a) The Secretary of State travelled between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland but did not make a specific visit to the Irish border. Details of Ministers’ overseas travel are published quarterly and are available on GOV.UK. b) Details of business expenses incurred by senior officials include domestic and international travel. This information is also published quarterly and is available on GOV.UK.

The information requested for all officials in my Department is not readily available and to provide it would incur disproportionate cost.
