HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 cc25-6W
42. Mr. Holland

asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will now give the publication dates of the 1978 "Directory of Paid Public Appointments made by Ministers", and the 1978 public boards White Paper listing members of public boards of a commercial character.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

The second edition of the "Directory of Paid Public Appointments made by Ministers will be published by the Civil Service Department tomorrow, Tuesday, 7th November. I am arranging for copies to be placed in the Library. Because of industrial action affecting Her Majesty's Stationery Office distribution service, copies will not be available in Government bookshops until that industrial action ceases. A limited number of copies will be available from my Department.

I have said that I intend to publish a revised version of the White Paper on public boards this year. This remains the case.
