§ Lord GEORGE-BROWN
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will issue an updated edition of the Directory of Paid Posts to which Ministers make appointments last compiled by the Civil Service Department in February 1976; and whether they will publish a list of the current holders of such appointments with similar details to those contained in Cmnd. 6803 relating to Public Boards.
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Lord Peart)
It is our intention to produce a new issue of theDirectory of Paid Public Appointments during the course of this year. I regret that it would be too costly to assemble and publish the list requested by my noble friend since the Directory of Paid Public Appointments lists approximately 10,000 posts. As my noble friend will be aware, however, when new bodies are set up the names of the people appointed to them are published in the Official Report of another place.
House adjourned at two minutes past six o'clock.
