To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to his answer of 6 July, Official Report, columns 95–96, whether his Department maintains a register of the interests declared by chairpersons and board members of the executive non-departmental public bodies, available for inspection at his or at the main offices of the eight relevant bodies.

As each of our non-departmental public bodies maintains a proper degree of operational independence, the Department does not recognise a need to maintain a central register giving these details. It is for the bodies themselves to decide whether to maintain records of their members' interests.
