**The financial cost figures exclude the department’s share of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) London premises at King Charles Street, and our share of FCO’s International Offices. Additionally, data for all of our UK regional offices at which we are a minor occupier is not reported or invoiced separately, and therefore are not included in these figures. Disaggregated costs for electricity and gas for buildings managed by the FCO and our other major government occupiers are not held centrally.
