asked the Minister of Overseas Development how many full- and part-time appointments, respectively, are made by her 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 she will take steps to reduce the number of such posts.

There are two full-time and 298 part-time appointments to various bodies and committees. The total annual expenditure on salaries and fees is approximately £53,500. I regret that the sum paid as expenses is not readily available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. I will, of course, keep the number of these appointments under review.
