HC Deb 27 January 1986 vol 90 cc369-70W
Mr. George

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many visits have been made by each of the departmental Select Committees, including visits by Sub-Committees, since their appointment, abroad and within the United Kingdom; and what is the total cost for each Committee, together with the global cost for each Committee and for all departmental Committees since their inception.

Mr. Biffen

[pursuant to his reply, 23 January 1986, c. 289–92]: Whilst all the visits referred to in the table involved official Select Committee business, they were not necessarily all quorate visits.
