HC Deb 23 January 1998 vol 304 c695W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what has been the cost of media presentations and press conferences which he has given, other than those held at his Department. [25147]

Mr. Straw

Media presentations and press briefings on Home Office subjects are, by and large, held at the Home Office. Where I meet the media on, for example, regional visits, there is little or no additional cost added to the visit costs. I have not held any media presentations outside the Department which have attracted expenditure.
