§ Mr. Mackintosh
asked the Prime Minister if he will list the names and total number of ad hoc bodies, boards, bureaux, commissions and regional authorities appointed by the Government and having functions in England and Wales.
§ The Prime Minister
I am not clear from my hon. Friend's Question what particular bodies he has in mind but in any case the compilation of a comprehensive list would be an expensive and time consuming business. If, however, my hon. Friend has any particular point in mind perhaps he would write to me so that I can see whether there is any way in which I can help him.
