§ Jackie Ballard
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions (1) what is the average attendance fee of(a) male and (b) female members of boards of non-departmental public bodies responsible to his Department; 
(2) what is the average salary of (a) male and (b) female members of boards of non-departmental public bodies responsible to his Department. 
§ Angela Eagle
Some board members of non-departmental public bodies give their time and services voluntarily and receive no payment other than normal travel and subsistence expenses. Where members do receive remuneration, this can be an annual salary or an attendance fee. Individuals' remuneration therefore is not directly comparable. Full details of all payments to board members of non-departmental bodies, by gender, are given in the Cabinet Office publication "Public Bodies". Copies of "Public Bodies 1997" are available in the Library of the House.
