  • After 46 refusals to publish the information the government is under pressure

The government is coming under pressure to publish the real costs of prime minister Pedro Sánchez's plane trips after 46 refusals to give the information "on security grounds".

Sánchez has been using a government Falcon jet a lot more than his predecessor since coming to power last June, and opposition MPs and some media have accused him of wasting public money. Nine requests for data on helicopter flights were also refused.
