HC Deb 12 December 1983 vol 50 cc347-8W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many hon. Members drew their full salaries and expenses for 1979–80, 1980–81, 1981–82 and 1982–83; and how many hon. Members are currently drawing the new salary and expenses.

Mr. Biffen

The numbers of hon. Members who drew their full parliamentary salaries in the years in question were:

1979–80 633
1980–81 633
1981–82 629
1982–83 631

Currently—1983–84–648 hon. Members are drawing full parliamentary salary.

It is regretted that the information relating to the expenses of hon. Members can only be provided at disproportionate cost.
