HC Deb 16 December 1998 vol 322 cc575-6W
Mr. Robert Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list(a) the (i) task forces, (ii) review panels and (iii) advisory groups his Department has, (b) the remit of each and (c) the members of each together with their principal employment and their level of remuneration. [62817]

Mr. Mandelson

My Department has a large number of task forces, review panels and advisory groups.

I have arranged for the information requested for each of these groups to be placed in the Library of the House as soon as it is practicable.

In addition my Department publishes the names of all those appointed to its Nationalised Industries and its executive and advisory non-departmental public bodies on the Public Appointments Website (www.open.gove.uk/pau/paupoint.htm). This information was last updated as of 30 September 1998 and includes the date of appointment and remuneration. I placed a copy of the full list in the Libraries of both Houses in reply to a question tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, East (Mr. Vaz) on 26 October 1998, to which I replied on 28 October 1998, Official Report, column 194.
