§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what was the cost to public funds of organising the event on investment in Poland on 10 March in Cardiff. 
§ Mr. Michael
The main purpose of this event was to raise awareness of export opportunities and the practicalities of doing business in Poland. Direct costs (ie excluding staff costs) amounted to £1,982 and were met by the Department of Trade and Industry.
In future the responsibility of organising events such as this will pass to the National Assembly for Wales.
