asked the Lord President of the Council 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 make 148 such appointments, mostly to university governing bodies, under Royal Charter powers which I have no authority to abrogate. These appointments are all part-time and attract neither salary nor expenses from official funds. No full-time appointments are made.
