§ Mr. Meadowcroft
asked the Minister for the Civil Service (1) whether he intends to publish an up-to-date directory of paid public appointments made by ministers;
(2) whether he will publish a list of additions, deletions and amendments to the directory of paid public appointments made by ministers, last published in 1978.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
The "Directory of Paid Public Appointments" has been superseded by the Cabinet Office (MPO) annual publication "Public Bodies." This contains a large amount of detailed information about public bodies, including ministerial appointments. The 1984 edition was published by HMSO in December last year. The next edition is due out in December 1985.
