HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c169W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list the advisory committees and their memberships which advise him on matters relating to the European Community; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

I am advised by the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council (IIAC) on relevant EC matters. This is a statutory advisory body made up of medical experts in occupational health, representatives of employers and employees organisations, a lawyer and an independent social researcher. A list of members can be found in their report published in May 1992, "Work-Related Upper Limb Disorders", Cm 1936.

Other advisory committees associated with the Department are kept informed of EC issues. The Department also discusses EC issues with representatives of the pensions and financial services sector as necessary.
