And here are some more references from the UK Musicians Union:

And attached. (2016)

Also, on a different page with a non-helpful link, there were two more documents for Commissioned Work (attached):

Here is a screenshot of recommended UK commission fees for 2004, which need to be multiplied by 1.43 to account for inflation. Why 2004? For some unfathomable reason, the UK competition authorities decreed that it was anti-competitive for BASCA to continue to publish these figures.

Actually, I see the fees from BASCA for 2004 are quite similar to those from the MU for 2008 as provided by tisimst above. Perhaps the competition authority took a little longer before asking the MU not to publish - who knows how these authorities decide to exercise the power that has been granted to them.
