Official Visits

Sheila Gilmore: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what visits each of the Ministers in his Department have made since January 2013; and what the purpose of each such visit was. [200490]

Jeremy Wright: The Department is not able to provide this information without incurring disproportionate cost because this would require extensive searches of all current and former Ministers’ diaries over this period and further research to confirm the purpose of each visit.

I can confirm that Ministers from this Department go on regular visits which are relevant to their portfolios, including to courts and tribunals, prisons, probation services and a wide range of organisations connected to the Department’s work.
