§ 39. Mr. Edelman
asked the Prime Minister how many offices of profit outside the appointments system of the Civil Service Commission were within the gift of Ministers on 1st January 1963 and 1st January 1975, respectively; and what was their respective value.
§ The Prime Minister
This information is not readily available in the form requested since there is no central record covering all offices of profit within the gift of Ministers at the dates mentioned. For the latest available information I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers which he has received between 4th-loth July 1974 and on 18th March 1975.
