HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 c195W
Mr. Edelman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many public appointments, other than those supervised by the Civil Service Commission, depend on his nomination; what is the annual cost of the consequential emoluments chargeable to public funds; and whether he will publish a schedule of the offices within his gift, other than those which are supervised by the Civil Service Commission.

Mr. Higgins

Ten paid appointments depend on the nomination of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. These are the Chairman, Deputy Chairman and eight members of the Decimal Currency Board. The annual cost of these appointments, which is borne on the Treasury Vote, is £11,605.
