Lord SHIN WELL
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is the amount of the expenditure incurred in fees, salaries and other items, by persons appointed by Ministers referred to in the publication Directory of Paid Public Appointments, during the last twelve months.
§ Lord PEART
As I have already made clear to my noble friend, the information he seeks is not held centrally and the cost of assembling it would be disproportionate.
House adjourned at a quarter past eight o'clock.
