Minister for Enterprise and Employment (Mr. R. Bruton): Information on Richard Bruton Zoom on Richard Bruton My Department has not signed a travel deal with any airline or travel agent for official travel to and from Brussels.

My Department did however use a travel agent to book all our travel arrangements for a trial period in 1995 following a value for money examinations of current practice. The six month trial period ended last month. My Department is currently reviewing the outcome and examining its future requirements.

I am not aware of the travel arrangements in other Government Departments which in any case are a matter for the respective Ministers.
