To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will place in the Library copies of the applications for membership of each lottery board of each of their members. (107873)

One of the fundamental principlesof the Office of the Commissioner for Public Appointments (OCPA) is openness and transparency. The OCPA Code states that information relating to the appointments process and its workings should be transparent, and information should be provided about appointments made, but it also protects the rightof individuals’ privacy in relation to personal information. It would not therefore be appropriate to place copies of application forms in the Libraries of the House.
