asked the Minister of Transport what is the cost to his Department of providing secretariat and executive support services for each non-departmental public body to which he appoints members other than civil servants.

Details of my Department's expenditure on these bodies were included in part three of the "Report of non-Departmental Public Bodies" (Cmnd 7797, pp 177–178). I am afraid precise information about secretariat and executive support services could only be provided at disproportionate expense.
