§ Mr. Foulkes
To ask the President of the Board of Trade on what date he appointed Baroness Miller of Hendon as a member of the Monopolies and Mergers Commission; on whose recommendation she was appointed; what relevant experience she has for the appointment; what time she is expected to devote each month to her work in this capacity; what annual payment is made; what official meetings she has attended in each year since her appointment; and what relevant interests she has which may conflict with her work as a member of the commission.
§ Mr. Jonathan Evans
Baroness Miller of Hendon resigned as a member of the Monopolies and Mergers Commission shortly after being made a life peer in 1993. She had originally been appointed on 3 March 1992 in view of her wide range of business experience. While at the commission, she made an important contribution by serving a number of inquiries working six days a month for an initial salary of £11,900. Before he appoints a member to serve on a particular inquiry, the chairman of the commission asks members to disclose any interests which might give rise to conflicts.
