HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 c340W
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.
