§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the gross total overall cost of the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Economic Planning Council and all its related activities during the last 12 months.
§ Mr. John Silkin
The costs of supporting the Economic Planning Council form part of the costs of the Department's regional organisation and cannot be separately identified. While the Chairman receives an honorarium, the members of the Council are unpaid.
