§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Minister for Trade what bodies or organisations for the day-to-day work or administration of which he does not answer parliamentary questions, receive finance from his Department's Vote.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
In addition to the non-official bodies and international organisations to which my Department gives grants, it is the sponsor Department for a number of executive bodies listed in "Non-Departmental Public Bodies; Facts and Figures 1981", and for British Airways, all of which receive finance from my Department's Votes. While I answer questions on the general principles underlying this finance, I do not answer for its detailed administration.
