To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) budget and (b) remit is of each non-departmental public body sponsored by his Department; who the chairman is of each; and to what salary, including bonuses and expenses, each chairman is entitled. (163603)

The annual budget for the Statistics Commission, the Treasury’s only NDPB, is £1.35 million. Its remit is “to help ensure that National Statistics are trustworthy and responsive to public needs”. The Commission’s chairman is Professor David Rhind who is paid £28,000 a year for 60 days work. He receives no bonus but can claim expenses to cover costs incurred while on Commission business.
