In June 2009, the Cabinet Secretary announced that business expenses incurred by the most senior Civil Servants on official duty would be published for the first time. The move reflected the Civil Service's commitment to maximum transparency. Sir Gus O'Donnell led the way by publishing his business expenses first.
The Cabinet Office publishes, on a quarterly basis, details of expenses and hospitality incurred by their most senior officials.
