HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 cc367-8W
Mr. Edelman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many public appointments are within his gift; and what is the cost to the Treasury.

Dr. Gilbert

My right hon. Friend makes five appointments which are paid from public funds. These are the Chairman and four members of the Review Board for Government Contracts. The appointments are all part-time and the salary cost amounts in all to £5,500 per year.
