Diplomats: Tour to Western Australia

(Question No. 1506)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in writing, on 7 September 2015—

In respect of the tour to Western Australia by Canberra-based diplomats in May 2014, what was the cost of ground transport for the entire touring party and what form(s) of ground transport were used.


Ms Julie Bishop: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The cost of ground transport for the entire touring party was $18,410 or $256 including GST per Head of Mission. This figure is comparable to the $251 including GST spent per Head of Mission on ground transport during the 2011 former Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd's Diplomatic Corp visit when adjusted for inflation.

The following forms of ground transport were used:

Coach

Minibus

Sedan
