§ Mr. Peter Atkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will list those of his appointees currently serving on national park authorities who have military backgrounds. 
§ Mr. Meale
We do not hold a comprehensive central record of the military service undertaken by Secretary of State appointees to the National Park Authorities; there is no specific requirement for candidates to list military service as part of the appointments process. I will undertake some inquiries and write to the hon. Member.
