To ask the Prime Minister what was the cost to public funds of the meeting held at Chequers on 13 January to review British foreign policy; and what are the rules determining which expenditures at Chequers shall be met from public funds.
§ The Prime Minister
[holding answer Tuesday 7 February]It is not my usual practice to give the costs of individual meetings or receptions.
Expenses incurred by Ministers and officials meeting at Chequers in the course of official duty are met by the Cabinet Office.
