There is a significant level of travel expenditure in my Department's budget, arising from the dispersed nature of my Department's services and, inter alia, the fact that a considerable level of investigative work must be carried out in the course of delivering the Department’s services. The total amount of home travel paid out by my Department in 2004, the last complete year for which figures are available, was €2,142,217.85. This includes car mileage totalling 1,818,026 miles, bus and train fares, and other miscellaneous travel costs; car mileage expenses are not recorded separately.
