Mr. Yeo

To ask the Lord Privy Seal what representations he has received regarding facilities for hon. and right hon. Members to participate in the payroll deduction scheme giving money to charities.

Mr. Wakeham

My predecessor and I have received letters from three hon. Members asking when the payroll deduction scheme will he available for Members and their staff. Additionally, two written parliamentary questions have been answered on this subject on 4 March 1987 at column630 and on 20 July 1987 at column 10. The Fees Office is at present negotiating with an agency, approved by the Inland Revenue, to set up a formal scheme for Members and their staff. Detailed arrangements will be circulated shortly.
