asked the Secretary of State for Employment what will be the cost to public funds of industrial tribunals in the current financial year; and what is the expected cost for 1980–81.

Estimated expenditure on salaries, fees and directly related expenses for 1979–80 is £6,758,000. The estimate for 1980–81 has not yet been finalised but is expected to be of the order of £5,500,000 at current prices. Superannuation, accommodation, printing and stationery, and so on, are provided without charge as an allied service; on average they would be likely to increase the direct expenditure by about 60 per cent.
