Mrs. Clwyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to his answer of 6 December, Official Report , column 168 , if he will make it his policy to collect figures on the cost of upkeep of each overseas diplomatic residence owned by Her Majesty's Government.
Mr. Goodlad: The FCO plans to introduce a new financial management accounting system in April 1996. It is the FCO's intention to utilise this facility to make aggregation of the relevant figures more readily attainable.
Mr. Baldry: An Order in Council--the Consular Fees (Amendment) Order 1994--was made on 14 December which provides for changes in entry clearance application fees with effect from 4 January 1995. A number of non-entry clearance consular fees were increased on 24 November. It is Government policy that the cost of entry clearance services should be borne by the users as far as possible. Some entry clearance fees, however, have remained unchanged for many years. To avoid too great a rise in the fee for settlement and analogous services, the increase will be made in two further annual stages until full cost-recovery is achieved in 1997.
