§ Mr. Holland
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment 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. Crosland
The total remuneration in the last financial year is estimated to be of the order of £1,450,000. Exact figures and the cost of travel and subsistence expenditure are not readily available and could be compiled only at disproportionate cost to public funds.
