The travel arrangements of former Secretary of State Kissinger and his family were questioned. Travel regulations authorize family members of high-level officials to accompany them at government expense if such travel enhances official business. Secretary Kissinger's wife attended meetings and conducted visits which served the interests of diplomacy. When there are unoccupied seats on Government-owned aircraft, dependents of some senior Government officials have been permitted to travel on board. Secretary Kissinger's children traveled without charge on this basis. With regard to trips by the Secretary while his wife was hospitalized, the Secretary was on official duty during these visits. His travel by military aircraft was paid by the Government because of his position and for security purposes.
