HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 c407W
Mr. Holland

asked the Minister of Overseas Development what is the total annual cost of fees, allowances and/or salaries paid to individuals, other than civil servants, appointed by him to bodies other than committees.

Mr. Prentice

It is not possible to provide an exact figure, because some payments are related to the number of attendances a member makes, but the approximate annual cost is £55,000.
