asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the total expenditure by his Department in 1980–81 and the estimated expenditure in 1981–82 on fees and commission to any outside bodies providing advice to, or acting as agents for, his Department in furtherance of the policy of privatisation of the assets of his Department or of nationalised industries or other bodies.

There was no expenditure by my Department under these headings in 1980–81. In 1981–82, expenditure arising from the sale of the combined shareholdings of my Department and Her Majesty's Treasury in the British Sugar Corporation Ltd. is estimated at £34,950 in fees and £60,207 in commissions.
