Mr. Snape

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the cost to public funds of his trip to the World Cup in Calcutta; what was the composition of his party; and what was(a) the purpose and (b) the outcome of his visit.

Mr. Moynihan

I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Ms. Short) on 12 November. It was important in the MCC's bicentenary year for me to be present to offer the England team congratulations on their magnificient achievement in reaching the World cup final.
