asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many replies were received to the advertisement placed in the national press last August for the post of Chief Charity Commissioner; how many other candidates there were for this post; how many of each of the above two categories were contained in the final short list and how many of each of the above two categories were selected for interview.

I am informed by the Civil Service Commission that 70 candidates applied for this post, of whom 51 indicated that they were responding to an dvertisement in the press, 14 to a Departmental notice, and five did not provide this information. Six candidates were shortlisted and interviewed, for whom the corresponding figures were two; three and one.
