asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer 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.

The Treasury provides secretariat and executive support services for the Treasure Trove Reviewing Committee, the Advisory Panel (Section 482, Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1970) and the Committee to Review the Functioning of Financial Institutions. The cost is negligible apart from the last-mentioned where the cost in 1979–80 was approximately £83,000.In addition, the Treasury is providing the secretariat for the recently established inquiry into the value of index-linked pensions. It is too early to provide costs for this body.
