HC Deb 10 February 1999 vol 325 c215W
Mr. Robert Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence 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. [62809]

Mr. Spellar

As far as bodies composed of independent members are concerned, I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mr. Chidgey) on 30 July 1998,Official Report, column 451.

While this Department has not set up any Task Forces since 1 May 1997, information on review panels and advisory groups on which external members serve and which are set up from time to time across the Department is not held centrally. Collecting this information is taking longer than expected. I will write to the hon. Member when this work is complete and a copy of my letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
