§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list all the names of public appointments that he has made, giving the period for which the appointment was made, relevant qualifications of the appointees and what remuneration each currently receives.
§ Mr. Eggar
My right hon. Friend is responsible for a total of over 800 public appointments. A total of 121 appointments, including reappointments, to 27 public bodies have been made since 9 April 1992. The required information on these appointments is not held centrally in the form requested and could be produced only at disproportionate cost. The readily available information about the public appointments for which my right hon. Friend is responsible is published regularly in "Public Bodies" and in "Public Appointments: A Handbook for Women's Organisations".
