30 June 2022
Thank you for your request which I received on 21 June 2022. You asked for the following information, in relation to each member of the Welsh Government Cabinet:
Total cost of transporting each Welsh Government minister between the following dates:
- 15/01/22 - 16/03/22; and
- 17/03/22 - 16/05/22
To be clear, I would like both these time periods separately for each minister individually.
I can confirm that the Welsh Government does not record transport costs by individual Minister.
The request you sent me contains personal information about you - for example, your name and address. The Welsh Government will be the controller for this information and, in accordance with the UK General Data Protection Regulation, it will be processed in order to fulfil our public task and meet our legal obligations under the Act to provide you with a response. We will only use this personal information to deal with your request and any matters which arise as a result of it. We will keep your personal information and all other information relating to your request for three years from the date on which your request is finally closed. Your personal information will then be disposed of securely.
Under data protection legislation, you have the right:

However, please note that the Commissioner will not normally investigate a complaint until it has been through our own internal review process.
