First class

The current controversy about the £700,000 spent by civil servants on credit cards last year reminds me of an old story about overseas travel at a time when the WDA was still in existence.

In a previous government it is reputed that a Cabinet Minister accompanied WDA officials on a trip to the USA. The Minister in question left it to the WDA officials to make the arrangements only to discover that the officials in question were in first class whilst the Minister was required to travel economy.

I do not think that the Minister concerned was very amused.
