Prepared internally, no external costs.
How much money the Government of Jersey spent on flights, hotels and taxis for five States Assembly members to attend the Queen's lying-in-state on Saturday 17th September.
I would also like to know much was spent on the meal they attended in London on the Saturday evening.
These States members were Chief Minister Deputy Kristina Moore, Deputy Chief Minister Deputy Kirsten Morel, Chief Scrutineer Deputy Sam Mézec, Privileges and Procedures Chair Constable Karen Shenton-Stone and Comité des Connétables Chair Constable Mike Jackson.
I would like the information to be broken down as so:
A. Flights for all five - £x
B. Hotels for the four states members (I know Deputy Moore stayed in her London flat on the Saturday night) - £x
C. Taxis - £x
D. Meal in London on the evening of Saturday 17 September (which I know also included staff from the Jersey London office): £x
D. None. This was paid for privately and not on any purchase cards.
