Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

There were 25 Department credit cards used by staff in my Department since 1 March 2011 and the total expenditure on each is listed in the table.

Card numbers 1 and 19 were used for the purchase of publications for the Department’s library and the remainder were used mainly in respect of approved foreign travel and subsistence expenses. Card numbers 1, 5, 6, 12, 14 and 18 were cancelled during this time frame and are no longer in use.
