HC Deb 11 March 1998 vol 308 c205W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many of the appointments to public bodies which he has made since 1 May 1997 have been from the Public Appointments Unit list. [33244]

Mr. Ron Davies

None. As I announced in a press release on 13 June 1997, it is my general policy to advertise appointments to attract a wide field of candidates. My Department is in the process of setting up a new list of potential candidates drawn from responses to these advertisements and other nominations received. This list will be used in conjunction with advertisements in future.
