§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland 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. Lang
The annual remuneration paid to those appointed to non-departmental public bodies within my responsibilities as at 1 July 1989 is set out in pages 60 to 68 and 85 of the Cabinet Office publication "Public Bodies 1989", a copy of which is available in the Library. The 1990 edition is due to be published later this month. Information on the annual cost of reimbursement of expenses is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
