The Government spent almost £6,000 sending four representatives to a climate change conference.

Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister Geoffrey Boot, MHK Martyn Perkins, DEFA Chief Executive Officer Richard Lole and Ecosystem Policy Manager Dr Fiona Gell attended the Chatham Conference last month.

Places at the conference cost a total of £4,020, while accommodation for the three-day trip cost almost £1,100.

£461.92 was spent on flights to the event, while just over £425 was claimed back on expenses.

The Government says the conference gave those attending a unique insight into the rapidly moving field of climate change.
