§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what bodies or organisations, for the day-to-day work or administration of which he does not answer parliamentary questions, receive finance from his Department's Vote.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
Apart from making payments for services provided by other Government Departments and public corporations, and specific grants to local authorities, my Department gives grants to a wide variety of non-official bodies and contributes to the cost of several international organisations. It is also the sponsor Department for a number of executive bodies listed in "Non-Departmental Public Bodies—Facts and Figures 1981", some of which receive finance from my Votes. While I answer questions on the general principles underlying these grants, I do not answer for their detailed administration.
