HC Deb 16 April 1999 vol 329 c382W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list the public appointments for which his Department is responsible and which carry a fee or salary, indicating for each type of appointment the fee or salary band which applies. [80749]

Mr. Mudie

[holding answer 15 April 1999]: "Public Bodies 1998"—copies of which are already available in the Library of the House—provides information on the levels of remuneration paid to those serving on the boards of public bodies for which my Department is responsible. The majority of public appointments, however, are unpaid as most of those who accept a public appointment do so on a voluntary basis.
