HC Deb 07 May 1982 vol 23 c159W
Mr Pawsey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs 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. Rifkind

In addition to the wide variety of non-official bodies and international organisations to which the Department gives grants or makes contributions, it is the sponsor Department for a number of executive bodies listed in "Non-Departmental Public Bodies; Facts and Figures 1981", which receive finance from our Votes. While my right hon. Friend answers questions on the general principles underlying these payments, he does not answer for their detailed administration.
