§ Mr. Philip Holland
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list in the Official Report in respect of the Equal Opportunities Commission the number of staff currently employed, the cost of staff remuneration and the number of meetings held in the past 12 months by the appointed members.
§ Mr. Raison
On 30 November the commission employed 172 staff, of whom 26 were part-time; expenditure on staff remuneration in 1981–82 totalled £1,427,717. I understand that during the past 12 months there have been 12 meetings of the commission and 15 meetings of committees. In addition commissioners have attended a variety of ad hoc meetings.
