§ Dr. Lynne Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what has been the cost of ministerial transport in each of the past five years; what allowance has been paid to Ministers who use their own vehicles; and what has been the cost in each of the past five years. 
§ Mr. Hague
The information is not readily available in respect of all transport and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. The cost of ministerial use of the official car service, a significant element of ministerial travel arrangements, over the five years is as follows:
- 1990–91: £144,209
- 1993–94: £174,069
Ministers who use their own vehicles are paid normal civil service rates. The cost in 1994–95 was £1,020 and in 1995–96 to date, £915. The cost of the previous three years is not readily available.
