HC Deb 15 November 2000 vol 356 c684W
Mr. Alasdair Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the non-departmental public bodies responsible to him which have duties relating to Scotland, indicating their budget and staffing in Scotland, the number of Scottish board members and their emoluments. [137700]

Mr. Robin Cook

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office 2000 Annual Report, held in the House Library, contains a list of non-departmental public bodies sponsored by my Department which have a remit that covers the United Kingdom. Information on board members and remuneration are contained within. The remaining information is not held centrally in the form requested, but general information on expenditure and staffing is published annually in the Cabinet Office publication "Public Bodies". Copies of "Public Bodies 1999" have been placed in the Libraries of the House and "Public Bodies 2000" is due to be published next month. Information on board membership and remuneration can also be downloaded from the Cabinet Office Public Appointments Directory website www.cabinet-office.gov.uk.
