HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 cc88-9W
Mr. Baker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many meetings he has attended overseas in 1976; how many days he has had to spend abroad on official business in 1976; and what were the comparative figures for each of the last six years.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

My right hon. Friend has attended six meetings overseas and spent 10 days abroad on official business this year. Comparative figures are readily available only from April 1971. They are as follows:
