§ Mr. Leighton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of his officials were sent to Brussels in 1978 to discuss EEC matters; what was the total man-days involved; and what was the cost to public funds of travel and subsistence, including sums reimbursed by the Commission.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
During 1978 Home Office officials visited Brussels on EEC business on 29 occasions, occupying a total of 69 man-days. Separate records of the actual costs incurred including sums reimbursed by the Commission are not maintained but might have amounted to approximately £5,000.
