Dear Welsh Government,

I am writing to kindly ask whether I could receive the following information regarding the Welsh Government’s overseas offices.

With regards to the final two questions, I would be grateful if I could receive information from at least the most recent financial year and, if possible, the previous four financial years, beginning from the most recent financial year available.

- How many offices does the Welsh Government have overseas, and where are these located?
- A breakdown of the number of staff at each overseas office.
- A breakdown of the annual costs incurred by the Welsh Government at each of its overseas offices, including (but not excluding): total cost of staff wages; total cost of rent or purchase of office; the costs of the expense accounts at each office.
- A list of purchases made at the Welsh Government’s overseas offices made using Welsh Government credit cards.

Yours faithfully,

T.J.

Welsh Government
