UIN HL17352, tabled on 22 July 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Viscount Younger of Leckie on 17 July (HL16983), what has been the total cost of the Trade Envoy system since 2012 including staffing support and travel costs.

Since the Programme was launched in November 2012 the cumulative cost of travel and subsistence has been £848,962.

Accurate staffing support figures for the programme are not available as the programme pre-dates the formation of the Department and has changed as the programme has evolved.

For 2018/19 the programme’s staffing costs were approximately £551,000. This is based on the average salary costs for the current staffing level.
