HC Deb 07 February 1985 vol 72 c685W
Mr. Dixon

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the total of annual fees, emoluments or expenses paid to the chairman and vice chairman of the South Tyneside district health authority.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No remuneration as such is paid to chairmen, vice-chairman or members of health authorities. Regional and district chairmen do however receive an honorarium, currently £8,424 a year. The conditions under which expenses may be claimed and the current rates payable are set out in the National Health Service and English and Welsh National Boards for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting (Travelling Allowances, etc) Determination 1983, a copy of which has been placed in the Library. For detailed information, the hon. Member may care to contact the health authority direct.
