§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many times he has used Service helicopters for the performance of ministerial duties; what was the total cost of his journey from Aberystwyth to Bala in July; and who bore the cost.
§ Mr. John Morris
Three times since February 1974. The cost of my helicopter on 10th July was £248, borne by the Welsh Office. It is my intention to continue using aircraft whenever the occasion warrants it in accordance with long established procedures and the practice of all my predecessors. As the hon. Member is aware, it is also my practice1100W to offer transport facilities to hon. Members in all parties whenever I know that they are attending the same functions as myself.
