HC Deb 31 March 1994 vol 240 c989W
Mr. Boyes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what was the total cost of official entertaining in his Department in each year since 1990–91; if he will list the receptions held in each year at his Department's expense; and what was the cost of each reception.

Mr. Hanley

The total cost of official entertainment for the years in question is included within the running cost expenditure for my Department which is published every year in the departmental report; figures for 1993–94 are not yet available. The entertainment budget is used for a variety of functions including receptions. Separate figures are not kept for individual functions.
