Community Relations: ReligionMr. Paul Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which places in the UK he visited in 2008 in connection with the Government's Preventing Violent Extremism strategy; on what dates he undertook the visits; what the estimated cost of such visits was for 2008; which towns or cities in the UK he plans to visit in 2009 in connection with Preventing Violent Extremism; what the cost is expected to be; and if he will make a statement. 
Bill Rammell: During 2008 my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary visited the following areas: 28 May, Tower Hamlets; 25 July, Birmingham; 8 September, Birmingham; 21 November, Bradford. The cost of these visits was £24,802.78. In January the Foreign Secretary will visit Manchester. Further visits are being planned. 27 Jan 2009 : Column 387W
I have absolutely no objection to David Miliband making these visits - but at more than £6,200 a time?! How was he travelling - by teleporter?
