§ Mr. Sproat
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is his estimate of the total cost of running Stormont during the first 12 months, including all services whatsoever, maintenance, repairs and salaries of all staff, including members of the Convention.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
From separate correspondence it appears that the hon. Member is interested in the cost of running the Parliament of Northern Ireland during its last 12 months. The total figure was £410,700. This does not include the salaries of members of the Convention, who received these from 8th May 1975.
