asked the Minister for the Civil Service if she will give details of the fees, payments, expenses and costs of the various officially constituted committees or tribunals under the chairmanship of Lord McCarthy, together with the payments made to the chairman and members of such bodies.
I have been asked to reply.No complete central record is kept of the individuals serving on Government committees or tribunals. However, I am not aware of any such body currently chaired by Lord McCarthy. The Railway Staff National Tribunal, which is chaired by Lord McCarthy, is not a Government body. Its costs and any payments to its members are a matter for British Rail and the various railway unions.
