§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list all the names of public appointments that he has made, giving the period for which the appointment was made, relevant qualifications of the appointees and what remuneration each currently receives.
§ Mr. Lang
[holding answer 2 November 1992]: As the information sought is extensive, I shall provide the hon. Member with a list of those I have appointed since becoming Secretary of State for Scotland and who currently hold their appointments. I am also arranging for copies of the list to be placed in the Library of the House. It shows the body on which they serve, the length of the appointment and, where appropriate, the remuneration. Information on relevant qualifications held, and on appointments, other than those of chairmen and deputy chairmen, is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
