Departmental Public Appointments

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what information his Department holds on the number of persons appointed to executive positions in bodies for which his Department has responsibility in the last five years who previously had careers in the banking industry. (261237)

During the last five years, the Department for International Development (DFID) has been responsible for three non-departmental public bodies:

Overseas Service Pensions Scheme (OSPS) Advisory Board was wound up on 1 October 2005;

Crown Agents Holding and Realisation Board was wound up on 1 April 2008;

Commonwealth Scholarship Commission is still in operation.

No appointments were made to executive positions in these bodies during the last five years since none of the non-departmental public bodies employed any staff.
