§ Mr. Robin Cook
The running costs of Chevening House and Estate are borne not by the Government but by the Chevening Trust. I meet the costs of food, drink and laundry for myself, my family and private guests.
I chaired a meeting at Chevening House on 5 January 1999 to discuss medium-term strategy for the FCO.
I hosted a dinner for the US Foreign Minister, Mrs. Madeleine Albright, on 27 December 1997, and had a meeting with the Dutch Foreign Minister, Mr. Jozias van Aartsen, on 17 August 1998.
