§ Mr. Alasdair Morgan
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will list the non-departmental public bodies responsible to him which have duties relating to Scotland, indicating their budget and staffing in Scotland, the number of Scottish board members and their emoluments. 
§ Jane Kennedy
The Lord Chancellor is responsible for the Council on Tribunals, which has a Scottish committee looking after issues relating to Scotland. The chairman of the committee, and two of its members, are also members of the main council and are jointly appointed by the Lord Chancellor and the Scottish Ministers. Although not having direct responsibility for the Scottish committee, the Lord Chancellor does reimburse the cost of the Committee at the end of each year.
The budget for the committee for the year ending 31 March 2000 was £89,000. The committee is supported by a secretariat of two officials. The Lord Chancellor is jointly responsible for three members (the other four are appointed solely by the Scottish Ministers). The Scottish committee chairman is paid £20,803 p.a. Committee members are paid £7,567 p.a.650W
Of the Lord Chancellor's other non-departmental public bodies, only the Advisory Council on Public Records has some duties relating to Scotland. This is because the Public Record Office is the UK national archive and some of the records and issues considered by the Council will affect Scotland as part of the UK. However, there is a separate statutory body in Scotland—the Scottish Records Advisory Council—run by the National Archives of Scotland.
