HC Deb 09 July 1975 vol 895 c171W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether, in the present economic situation, he will make it Her Majesty's Government's policy to refrain from paying more than £3,000 per annum to members of Government boards who serve on a part-time basis.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

No. Part-time members of Government boards will continue to be paid according to the responsibilities they carry and the amount of part-time work they do. It would be inappropriate to lay down a flat rate limitation when the contribution made by part-time members varies from two or three days a month to four days a week.
