The Prime Minister

I travel making the most efficient and cost-effective arrangements. My travel arrangements are in accordance with the arrangements for official travel set out in chapter 7 of the Ministerial Code, and the accompanying guidance document, Travel by Ministers.

My office keeps records of my home and overseas travel. Since June 2001, I have made 33 journeys by air and eight by train. A judgment is always made about what is the most appropriate form of travel in the time available.
