HC Deb 11 March 1998 vol 308 c195W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many of the appointments to public bodies which he has made since 1 May 1997 have been from the Public Appointments Unit list. [33245]

Mr. Spellar

MOD seeks nominations of candidates for appointments to public bodies using a wide range of sources, including the Public Appointments Unit and advertising, to ensure that there is the widest possible dissemination of information about vacancies. Since 1 May 1997, 4 appointments to public bodies have been made from the Public Appointments Unit list. In addition, a further 11 have been considered for appointment but were not successful.
