HC Deb 20 April 1994 vol 241 c538W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what percentage of public appointments made by his Department in 1993 were of(a) Asians and (b) black people; and if he will list their names.

Mr. Sproat

In 1993, 146 appointments were made to the bodies for which the Department of National Heritage is responsible. Of these, two appointments were of Asian people and two of black people, representing 1.37 per cent. in each case or a total of 2.7 per cent.

It would not be appropriate to identify individual appointees in the way requested.
