To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the names, occupations and current employers of those who currently hold positions in each public body to which he makes appointments; if he will make a statement on the considerations taken into account when making such appointments; and if he will list details of the posts and salaries or allowances payable which have changed since the publication of "Public Bodies 1992".

[holding answer 25 June 1993]: No central record is maintained of all the names, or of the occupations and current employers of members currently holding positions in the public bodies for which I am responsible.Appointments are to a wide range of bodies and widely different qualities and experience may be required for different tasks. Some appointments call for relevant experience or expert knowledge of a specific subject or sector. Others require no particular specialist knowledge or experience. Interests, location and time commitments may also be relevant.Information on salaries or allowances payable which have changed since the publication of "Public Bodies 1992" has yet to be collated by my Department and could be provided now only at disproportionate cost.
