asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the rank and salary payment of Mr. Stan Godfrey, his Press officer; what public duty he carried out on 15th February in travelling to and from the Independent Television News news studio; what fees he received; and whether he will make a statement.

I assume, that my hon. Friend has in mind the Press report that Mr. Godfrey accompanied Mrs. Healey to the ITN News studio on 15th March. Mr. Godfrey is a principal information officer. The salary scale for this grade is £5,680–£7,450 p.a., and in addition he receives £465 p.a. London weighting and £313·20 p.a. pay settlement. His responsibilities include liaison between the Treasury and broadcasting institutions, and this was the rôle that he was carrying out on that occasion. He received no fee.
