HC Deb 11 March 1998 vol 308 c185W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many of the appointments to public bodies which he has made since 1 May 1997 have been from the Public Appointments Unit list. [33257]

Angela Eagle

Up to now, no central record has been maintained of the source of candidates for the public appointments made by my Department. Potential candidates are identified from a wide range of sources, including the Public Appointments Unit and advertising. I regret that the information cannot be provided in the form requested.
