HC Deb 12 March 1998 vol 308 cc312-3W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of the appointments to public bodies which he has made since 1 May 1997 have been from the Public Appointments Unit list. [33256]

Mrs. Liddell

Treasury Ministers use a wide range of sources, including the Public Appointments Unit, to identify candidates for public appointments. Of those appointments made since 1 May 1997, one has been identified as having been as a direct result of the PAU list. However there may be other appointees, identified from other sources, who are also on the PAU list.
