HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 cc672-3W
Mr. Forman

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the total cost in salaries and fees of the paid public appointments for which he is responsible that are referred to in pages 85 to 101 of the Civil Service Department publication "A Directory of Paid Public Appointments made by Ministers"; and if he will list the names and previous occupations of all those appointed to those public bodies.

Mr. Millan

The estimated annual cost is £682,000. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on 26th May to my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. White)—[Vol. 912, c.264.]—with regard to the present appointees. Previous occupations of these appointees could only be listed at disproportionate cost.
