The Nolan committee on standards in public life will call for tighter controls over potential conflicts of interest among people appointed to serve on training and enterprise councils, grant-maintained schools, further education colleges and housing associations, The Guardian reports (p1).

In a report due next month, Lord Nolan will oppose all payments for appointees on a wide range of education, training and housing bodies. People should serve out of a sense of duty rather than financial gain.

The paper details 'dramatic' figures it has uncovered in ministerial annual reports on the levels of payments to quango members.
