With regards to the cost of ministerial cars and drivers I refer the hon. Member to the letter sent by Nick Matheson, the Chief Executive of the Government Car and Despatch Agency on 17 September 2003.
The Government annually publishes the overall costs of all ministerial overseas travel that includes cost of train tickets, airline tickets, use of helicopters and cost of planes chartered for ministerial travel. The next list for the period 1 April 2003 to 31 March 2004 will be published at the end of the financial year.
The information regarding the remaining parts of the question is not held centrally, and could be provided only at disproportionate costs.
