§ Q12. Mr. Trotter
asked the Prime Minister whether he is satisfied with the procedure at present used by various Government Departments to find suitable persons to appoint to public bodies.
§ The Prime Minister
Yes. As the House knows, a number of steps have been taken to widen the field of selection and to make more information available about paid posts. The Directory of Paid Appointments made by Ministers is about to be published and copies are now available in the Library: it will be on sale to the public.
