§ Mr. Steen
asked the Member answering for the House of Commons Commission whether he will give a list of the number of persons and categories of House of Commons staff for whose pay the Commission is responsible, the top increment of whose salary scale is in excess of the salary currently paid to hon. Members.
§ Mr. Beith
I have been asked to reply.
I refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply given today on behalf of the Commission to the hon. Member for Eltham (Mr. Bottoinley) which records numbers of staff in the House whose salary maximum exceeds £15,362 per annum. If the relevant figure is set at £14,510 per annum, only one addition should be made to that list, as follows:
Department of the Library Salary per annum £ 1 Deputy Deliverer of the Vote 11,329–14,773
