David Cameron to take Cabinet on the road
David Cameron will take his Cabinet out on the road tomorrow - in the first away-day meeting for the coalition Government's top team, Downing Street said today.
The Prime Minister is keen to continue the practice, revived by Labour predecessor Gordon Brown for the first time since the 1920s, of hosting meetings outside London.
As under the previous administration, the day will also include a series of visits by Ministers related to their areas of responsibility.
Details of the location have not been publicly revealed.
Labour was accused of using the events to target marginal constituencies in the run up to the general election amid criticism of the cost - reported to be £100,000 a time.
A Number 10 spokesman said: "Everything is going to be done to keep the cost to an absolute minimum."
