§ 57. Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what moneys he will pay as part-time remuneration to the Chairman of the Sports Council; what amount of time the Chairman will devote to his duties; what is the appropriate full-time remuneration for such a post; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
To start with, the Chairman of the Scottish Sports Council will receive £1,000 a year. Until the council has been operating for some months it will not be possible to say exactly how much of his time will be taken up by Sports Council work but at present it is not expected to exceed the equivalent of one day a week. The payment is not directly related to any full-time salary but is broadly in line with what is paid to the part-time chairmen of other bodies, having regard to the time their respective duties are likely to involve; the amount will be reviewed at the end of the year.
