§ Ms. Harman
asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list all the advisory committees whose members are appointed by him; and, in respect of each such committee, how many of the members are women and how many are men.
§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
Details of advisory non-departmental public bodies in my field as at 1 July 1983 are as follows:
Name of Body Chairman Members Male Female Male Female Advisory Council on Energy Conservation (ACEC) 1 — 16 2 Advisory Council on Research and Development for Fuel and Power (ACORD) 1 — 15 — Offshore Energy Technology Board (OETB) 1 — 7 — Oil Industry Liaison Committee (OILCO) 1 — 18 —
Appointments to the first three bodies are made by my right hon. Friend. Bodies invited to attend OILCO are approved by me, but they appoint their own representatives. Approved bodies include the main organisations representing trade union interests in the supplies industry as well as clients and suppliers.
