Exmoor National Park Authority: Public Appointments

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the total cost to his Department was of appointments to the committee of the Exmoor National Park made by the Secretary of State in the last three years. (295262)

The Secretary of State appoints members every year to each of the English National Park Authorities that have vacancies. The process for inviting applications and selecting the successful candidates also involves Natural England, the National Park Authorities and the Office of the Commissioner for Public Appointments. The cost of making these appointments for Exmoor or the other individual park authorities is therefore not available.
