§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give at the latest and most convenient stated date, the numbers of peers of the realm who hold any appointment sponsored by his Department; what situation or appointment each one holds; how many hours per week are given to the work connected with it; what are the salaries or expenses paid; and how the latter figures compare with May 1979.
§ Mr. Younger
I refer the hon. Member to the written answer I gave him on 16 December 1980—[Vol. 996, c. 155–6]—which was based on the position at 1 September 1980, the latest date for which this information is held centrally.
Details of the numbers of hours per week work(A, expenses paid and salary figures at May 1979 are not readily available and could not be provided except at disproportionate cost.
