asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many full-and part-time appointments, respectively, are made by him which are not subject to regulation by the Civil Service Commission; what is the total sum paid annually as salary and expenses for such appointments; and if he will take steps to reduce the number of such posts.

I am responsible for two full-time and 570 part-time appointments, of which 503 are unpaid. The total salary costs amount to £145,350 per annum. In many cases expenses are not met from Welsh Office Votes and information about the total paid as expenses is, accordingly, not available. No more appointments are made than are needed for the work to be done.
