Summary of travel spending
The royal travel grant-in-aid is the annual funding provided by the Department for Transport to meet the cost of official royal travel by air and rail.
For the year ending 31 March 2002, the grant was £6m, but only £4.9m was spent.
Over all, spending was down on the previous year by £0.5m, mainly due to a revision of charges in using 32 Squadron aircraft.
Air travel takes up the most money, with helicopters the single most expensive form of transport at £1.96m.
The amount spent on chartered civil aircraft more than doubled, due to major tours such as Jubilee visits to Jamaica, New Zealand and Australia.
