§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list those international organisations on which his Department is represented and the total cost of these commitments.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
The Department is an affiliated member of the International Social Security Association. The 1989 membership subscriptions will be approximately £112,000. In addition the Department participates in the work of all international organisations of which the United Kingdom is a member, whenever social security issues arise. It is impossible to apportion the overall United Kingdom contribution to each organisation between social security and other activities.
