Reading committee members will receive an honorarium for their time and contributions. The total amount received will be dependent on number of applications assessed, based on £1.50 per application. It is anticipated that each committee member will assess between 400-600 applications. Additionally, assessors will be paid £25 for satisfactory completion of each country/territory report.
