UK trips by ministers

The request was refused by Her Majesty's Treasury.

Hello,

Please can I request under the Freedom of Information Act:

An electronic spreadsheet file (e.g. Excel file) containing information about each trip taken within the UK by a minister within your department on official duties, from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.

To include in separate columns:
Name of minister
Full address of destination
Postcode of destination
Start date of trip
End date of trip
Purpose of trip
Cost of trip (to include transport, meals and accommodation)
Whether the minister was accompanied by spouse, family member(s) or friend at public expense (Yes/no. If yes, please provide details)

If a minister who served during this time period made no UK trips on ministerial duties, please state their name with the entry ‘No trips taken within UK’

To reiterate: I am aware information is published about minsters’ overseas visits. It is visits within the UK that I request information about.

Yours faithfully,

Claire Wilde

To clarify: By ministerial trip, I mean an engagement while on ministerial duties to any location except central Government or Parliamentary premises, regardless of the length of time of the trip.
