Public Appointments

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many public appointments are within his patronage; what (a) salary and (b) other emoluments are attached to each; and what the comparable figures were in (i) 1976, (ii) 1986 and (iii) 1996. (83194)

Details of the public appointments to bodies sponsored by the Treasury can be found in “Public Bodies”, copies of which are in the Library. “Public Bodies” has been published annually since 1980 and the most recent edition provides figures for 2005. Each edition of “Public Bodies” contains details on the number of public appointments and remuneration details for that particular year. Comparable information for 1976 is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
