To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 6 July, Official Report, column 113–14, whether a register of interests of appointees to the executive non-departmental bodies sponsored by his Ministry is maintained by (a) his Department and (b) the various bodies; and whether such registers of interests are available for public scrutiny.

A register of interests of appointees is not maintained centrally by my Department or by any of the executive non-departmental bodies. The Services Sound and Vision Corporation (SSVC) is, however, both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. Its directors are required under company law to disclose any other directorships they hold. These disclosures are registered at Companies house and therefore available for public scrutiny.
