To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many lord lieutenants and deputy lieutenants there are in (a) England, (b) the North West and (c) Lancashire.
21 December 2016
There are 47 Lord-Lieutenants in England, five of whom are in the North West. Like other counties, Lancashire has one Lord-Lieutenant.
Information on the number of serving Deputy Lieutenants is not held centrally: the number of Deputy Lieutenants in a Lieutenancy at any time is a matter for the Lord-Lieutenant, subject to limits calculated on the basis of population size. Lieutenancy websites may hold relevant information about current Deputy Lieutenants.
