In November 2015, he attended the ‘ACA Europe’ conference on public procurement in Helsinki. Costs As a general rule, all international travel and accommodation costs were paid for by the host country or institution. The net cost to the UKSC of international travel for Justices was approximately £3,000, significantly less than in recent years. This is largely due to the fact that it happened to be the UK’s turn to host the major exchanges mentioned earlier in this chapter. Supreme Court Annual Report 2015–2016
