Information about Cabinet Ministers' overseas travel including the destination and purpose of each trip is published annually by the Cabinet Office. Copies of the lists covering the period 2 May 1997 to March 2001 are in the Libraries of the House. The list for the period 1 April 2001 to 31 March 2002 is currently being assembled, and will be published in due course. Information about visits to Ministers in the UK by overseas Government Ministers and officials is not held centrally, and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
