§ 23. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, seeing that officials of the Irish Agricultural Organisation Society interfere with the business and sometimes increase the expenditure of statutory bodies whose expenditure in salaries and in other respects is under public control and that the society receives State aid, will he state the names of all the officials of this society paid £100 a year or more, with the salary and expenses of each in the last completed financial year?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Montagu)
I fear I cannot give the hon. Member the information he seeks.
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The Development Commission who make this Grant satisfy themselves that the expenditure on salaries is not excessive. Without the consent of the society, therefore, I have no power to give the information.
