asked the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to his reply on 14 July, Official Report, column 326, how many appointments he is responsible for to the bodies listed in that reply and to any other public bodies to which he is invited to nominate by Ministers in other Departments of State.
I am currently responsible for 507 appointments to the bodies listed in the reply given to the hon. Member for Bootle (Mr. Roberts) on 14 July 1981. As the list of the members of these bodies is a long one, I am writing to the hon. Member with this information and will arrange for a copy of my letter to be placed in the Library. I am also currently responsible for 968 appointments to other public bodies.—[Vol. 8, c. 326–7].
