HC Deb 09 June 1993 vol 226 c276W
19. Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the total number of people he appoints to quangos and the total remuneration given to them.

Mr. Lang

As at 1 September last year, I made just under 4,000 public appointments. The majority of them are not paid. For those where a salary is paid, the total amount of remuneration, at the same date, was £2.1 million. This figure does not include a number of appointments which are fee paid and where, of course, the amount of fee depends on the days of attendance.
