Information about the numbers and remuneration of ministerial appointments to public bodies, including the names of chairpersons, is included in the annual Cabinet Office publication "Public Bodies". Copies are available in the Libraries of the House and it is also published on the Cabinet Office's website, www.cabinet-office.gov.uk/quango. The next edition of "Public Bodies", which will include information on appointments as at 31 March 2001, will be published shortly.

There have been 190 appointments to Ministry of Defence non-departmental public bodies over the period January 1999 to December 2001, including those sponsored by the War Pension Agency, which was part of the then Department of Social Security until July 2001.

I will write to my hon. Friend with details of the individuals appointed and a copy of my letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
