§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether Members of the House of Lords who are also members of or chairmen of State boards etc. either on a full- or part-time basis in receipt of salaries and/or expenses for these appointments, are allowed to draw, in addition, the 4½ guineas per day House of Lords Sessional Allowance; and what, for the latest stated period, were the number so drawing and the total amounts drawn on average during the last 12 months.206W
§ Mr. MacDermot
Such members of another place are entitled to recover the expenses actually incurred by them in attending their House up to a maximum of 4½ guineas per sitting day. The administration of the scheme is entirely a matter for another place, and I have no information as to amounts claimed by particular categories of Peers.
