HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 cc75-6W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is the total number at present on the payroll of the National Enterprise Board; and if that total includes the recently announced Northern Panel and its staff.

Mr. Les Huckfield

On 13th January 1978 there were eight members of the National Enterprise Board paid by the Board, and two members eligible for such payment but not drawing it. One of the paid members is a member of the Board's northern regional board. Payments to members of that board, and any aspect of staffing, are matters for the National Enterprise Board.
