§ Mr. Gordon Prentice
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of his officials attended conferences(a) in the United Kingdom and (b) overseas; and how many and what percentage made (i) oral and (ii) written contributions to the matters under discussion in the last 12 months for which figures are available. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
Treasury officials attend numerous conferences both at home and abroad in pursuit of the Government's agenda. I would be surprised if they did not make either oral or written contributions on these occasions. However, statistics on such contributions could be compiled only at disproportionate cost.
