HC Deb 14 November 1983 vol 48 c321W
Mr. George

asked the hon. Member answering for the House of Commons Commission how many visits have been made by each of the departmental Select Committees, including visits by Sub-Committees, in the last Parliament (a) abroad and (b) within the United Kingdom for each session since their appointment; and what is the total cost for each Committee for each session together with the global list for each Committee and for all departmental Select Committees for each session.

Mr. Alan Beith

[pursuant to the reply, 29 July 1983, c. 634–35]: I regret that though correct costs were attributed to United Kingdom and overseas travel by each of the departmental Select Committees in the reply of 29 July 1983, the sessional totals were miscalculated. The true figures, which are shown below, are marginally lower. They are:

1979–80 132,680
1980–81 159,321
1981–82 181,172
1982–83 142,286
