§ 32. Mr. Holland
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will give a list of those bodies, other than committees, to which he appoints members, other than civil servants or Service personnel; and what is the number of members serving on each body.
§ Mr. Mason
I assume that the hon. Member has in mind salaried appointments to public bodies outside the Ministry of Defence and the Armed Services where the salaries are met from public funds. In this case the answer is "None". I do, however, make a large number of unsalaried appointments to advisory bodies, boards of trustees and similar organisations; but it would involve disproportionate effort and cost to public funds to list all these.
