HC Deb 26 January 1978 vol 942 cc718-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, in view of the fact that Sir Matthew Stevenson who chaired the Committee of Inquiry into the Crown Agents was also concurrently a part-time member of the British Steel Corporation, how many meetings of the board during the period of this inquiry he attended out of the possible maximum; and what salary and expenses were drawn by him during this period.

Mr. Les Huckfield

During the period in question, Sir Matthew Stevenson's salary as a part-time member of the Board was £1,000 a year and he was entitled to reimbursement of reasonable expenses incurred in that capacity. Actual sums drawn are a matter for the Corporation as is the number of Board meetings attended.
