The Speaker's official travel costs

In line with the House's commitment to greater transparency, details of the Speaker's official travel costs have been published.

One of the duties of the Speaker of the House of Commons is to represent Parliament and foster good relations with fellow speakers and parliamentarians. He is committed to encouraging public engagement with Parliament and visits universities, schools, charities and other organisations around the UK to explain and promote the work and role of the House of Commons. The majority of travel is economy class, except for long haul flights and where other classes may be best value for money or match timing requirements.
