asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many public appointments he is responsible for; and what is the estimated annual public expenditure for these appointments in salaries and expenses.
A consolidated list, as at 1 July 1978, of the appointments for which I bear sole or joint responsibility was placed in the Library in response to the question tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock (Mr. Roberts) on 26 June 1978.—[Vol. 952, c. 404.] The annual estimated cost of the salaried appointments is of the order of £600,000. No central record is held of fees and expenses.
