HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 cc363-4W
Q10. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether he will prepare and publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT, as soon as it can be ready, a detailed list of State and Government appointments, including civil servants, together with the positions held, where the persons concerned receive more in salary than that now received by a Minister of State and the names and positions held by these persons, with their salaries, as on 1st July, 1971.

The Prime Minister

To provide the information in the form requested by the hon. Member would involve a disproportionate expenditure of time and money. So far as the Civil Service is concerned, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to him by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Civil Service Department on 17th March. Following is a list of publications that provide much of this information:
