HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c97W
Mr. MacFarquhar

asked the Lord President of the Council how many hon. Members have travelled first class by air on official business in each of the past three years; what was the cost of their tickets; and how much would have been saved if they had travelled economy class.

Mr. Foot

The information is as follows.

Year Number of members Cost
1975–76 61 £45,707
1976–77 72 £54,291
1977–78 31 £24,057

Had the Members travelled by economy class there would have been a saving of one-third of these costs.
