§ Mr. Canavan
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what public appointments he has made since 1 November 1992; and what information he has on the political affiliations of those appointed.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
Details of all the appointments for which the Home Department has been responsible since 1 November 1992 could be compiled only at disproportionate cost. Information about the appointments for which the Home Department was responsible last year up to 30 September 1992 is given in "Public Bodies", a copy of which is in the Library. Information on the political affiliations of those appointed is not sought by my Department.
