§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give the salary and expenses of the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Equal Opportunities Commission, the actual or estimated number of hours worked for the longest and most convenient stated period of time, the number of meetings held by the Commission and the recorded attendances at such meetings; and how long the meetings were in session.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The salaries of the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Equal Opportunities Commission are £10,808 per annum and £7,521 per annum respectively, and expenses necessarily incurred on the Commission's business are reimbursed. Both posts are full-time. The conduct of the Commission's day to day business is a matter for the Commission.
