The Cabinet Office publication “Public Bodies 2007” lists the number of people serving on the boards of public bodies as at 31 March 2007. These figures are broken down by individual Departments. As my Department was created by machinery of government changes in June 2007, its non-departmental public bodies are listed within those of its predecessor Departments, namely the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department for Education and Science.
For ease of reference, the relevant non-departmental public bodies are as follows:

Higher Education Funding Council for England
Learning and Skills Council
National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts
