HC Deb 30 October 2000 vol 355 cc293-4W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the President of the Council if the Appointments Commission will report annually to Parliament on the discharge of its functions. [133715]

Mrs. Beckett

Like all Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs), the Appointments Commission will publish an Annual Report. There is no requirement for this to be laid before Parliament, but the report will of course be placed in the Libraries of the House.
