You'd think that if you wanted Foreign travel the best place to work would be the Foreign Office, but actually, being in David Miliband's DEFRA isn't too bad.
David "I love the planet" Miliband managed to spend just under £2.6m on foreign air travel last year. He also racked up just over a million on foreign rail travel, and spent just shy of £800K on foreign hotels.
Now perhaps I'm being mean but £2.6m seems an awfully excessive amount of air travel spend for the Secretary of the State for the Environment at a time when he says we're all doomed and must change our environmentally unfriendly ways.
On the other, what is effectively £2000 per day on foreign accommodation must buy a hell of the lot of room service and *cough* movies.
