HC Deb 19 May 1986 vol 98 c33W
Mr. Nellist

asked the Prime Minister what was the cost to public funds of her attendance at the Bilderberg conference.

The Prime Minister

My attendance at the Bilderberg conference at Gleneagles was combined with a visit to the North Sands shipyard in Sunderland. The total cost of travel for myself and my staff was £2,228. It is not practical to break down the separate travel costs incurred on the Sunderland and Gleneagles sections of the visit. The costs of my stay at the conference itself were met by the organisers.
