§ Mr. Malcolm Bruce
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many individuals in(a) his Department, (b) agencies and (c) non-departmental public bodies received annual remuneration including benefits in kind exceeding (i) £100,000, (ii) £200,000 and (iii) £300,000 in each year since 1985–86. 
§ Mr. Norris
[holding answer 1 November 1995]: Other than pension contributions, benefits in kind are not normally paid to staff in the department, agencies and NDPBs. As members of the principal civil service pension scheme, staff receive benefits in accordance with the scheme rules which have been deposited in the Library of the House. In the Department and its agencies only one person currently receives an annual remuneration above £100,000. This was also the case in 1994–95 and 1993–94. Before that no-one received £100,000 or more. No one has received £200,000 or above.
Information for non-departmental public bodies is not immediately available. I will write to the hon. Member separately with those figures.
