§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will arrange for a table to be published at a suitable time and in a convenient format on a regular basis indicating the travelling expenses claimed during the last financial year by each right hon. and hon. Member.
§ Mr. Pym
No. To publish detailed information of this kind and in the form requested would conflict with the established practice of this House. Moreover, right hon. and hon. Members are entitled to the same degree of confidentiality in matters pertaining to their personal financial affairs as other United Kingdom taxpayers.
