HC Deb 03 December 1997 vol 302 c211W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many public appointments he has made since 1 May; and how many and what percentage of these(a) receive remuneration and (b) are of (i) Afro-Caribbean and (ii) Asian origin. [16777]

Mr. Dewar

Since 1 May I have made 105 Public Appointments. Of these, 77 or 73 per cent. receive remuneration.

The information about ethnic origin cannot be provided since to do so would risk identifying individuals without their consent. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has provided information for all departments in an aggregated form.
