HC Deb 15 January 1998 vol 304 c283W
Mr. Wilshire

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list all overseas visits made since 1 May 1997 on which he or any other Minister in his Department has been accompanied under Rule 83 of the Ministerial Code, indicating(a) who accompanied him (b) the cost to public funds of each such visit.

Dr. David Clark

My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary and I have been accompanied solely by departmental officials on the overseas visits which we have undertaken. The provisions of paragraph 83 of the Ministerial Code therefore do not apply.
