HC Deb 09 March 1998 vol 308 c53W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many of the appointments to public bodies which he has made since 1 May 1997 have been from the Public Appointments Unit list. [33255]

Mr. Tony Lloyd

None. This Department is responsible for appointments to seven bodies which are classed as Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs). The number of appointments to them is very small. We seek nominations of candidates for these appointments using a wide range of sources, including the Public Appointments Unit and advertising.
