Question to the Cabinet Office:
To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what the cost to the public purse was of the flight taken by the Prime Minister and officials from London to Leeds on 9 January 2023.
All Ministerial travel is undertaken using efficient and cost-effective travel arrangements.
As a whole, domestic flights within the United Kingdom allow Ministers to visit more parts of the United Kingdom in the time available, particularly areas further away from London, and reduce the need for overnight accommodation for Ministers and accompanying staff. Security considerations are also taken into account.
Details of departmental business travel are published in the Cabinet Office audited annual report and accounts.
