Please find below information relating to FOI request ‘Secretary of State accommodation and travel costs’.

We were asked for details of all costs for accommodation, travel, food and drink incurred by the Secretary of State for Wales from when the coalition government was established in May 2010 to 11 January 2011.

The information is shown in the table below.

Accommodation for Secretary of State on official business £1,558.74 at an average cost of £91.69 per night

Travel costs for Secretary of State on official business £3,267.92

 The amount spent on travel represents a saving of 63% when compared to the corresponding period a year ago (£9,067.30), demonstrating the significant efficiency savings achieved in the last year.  Similarly, the average cost of accommodation per night has fallen.

It is not possible to disaggregate the cost of food and drink.
