§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether the chairman of Cable and Wireless Limited is entitled to claim, in addition to his chairman's salary for this part-time employment, his former ministerial pension and his House of Commons Members' pension; and what these amounts total for this employment and the number of hours spent on the job.
§ Mr. Les Huckfield
Pensions under the parliamentary pensions scheme are not my responsibility but I understand that the Parliamentary Pensions Acts do not require abatement of pensions on appointment to a public board.
The current annual salary for this 3½-day-per-week appointment is £10,150.
