HC Deb 18 October 1972 vol 843 cc88-9W
55. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give the date when Mr. W. G. Pottinger was suspended from duty and for what reasons; whether such suspension is on full or half pay; and how much payment has been made to date.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister informed the House on 18th July, Mr. Pottinger was suspended from duty on that day, pending the outcome of a police investigation into matters arising out of the public examination in bankruptcy of Mr. Poulson. He receives full pay, which for the period since suspension until the end of last month amounted to £2,145 gross.
