HC Deb 05 December 1990 vol 182 c139W
Mr. Fisher

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the annual cost of fees and reimbursements to people appointed to(a) public, (b) non-governmental and (c) other bodies by his Department.

Mr. Eggar

The estimated cost for 1990–91 of fees to people appointed by the Secretary of State to non-departmental public bodies is £775,000. In addition there are a number of appointments to other bodies which do not normally attract payment. Information about reimbursement is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
