§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether members of industrial training boards, industrial tribunals and disablement advisory committees, respectively, receive salaries or allowances in respect of their services; how much they receive; and whether it is in respect of full or part-time service.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
Chairmen of industrial training boards work part-time and may receive payment on the basis of £1,320 per annum for one day's work per week pro rata. They may also receive travelling expenses and subsistence allowances. At present two boards have deputy chairmen who are paid on the same basis. Ordinary board members receive only travelling expenses, subsistence allowances and, where appropriate, an allowance for loss of remunerative time.
Members of industrial tribunals are paid a fee of £20 for each day on which they are required to attend a tribunal. This service is part-time and on average members are called to attend only 15 days a year.
Chairmen of industrial tribunals may be either full-time or part-time. Fulltime chairmen are paid an annual salary of £11,750. Part-time chairmen are paid a fee of £45 for each day on which they are required to attend. Both members and chairmen of industrial tribunals may be paid travelling expenses and subsistence allowance.
Neither chairmen nor members of disablement advisory committees, all of 387W whom work part-time, receive payment other than travelling expenses, subsistence allowances and, where appropriate, an allowance for loss of remunerative time.
