To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if he will make a statement on the role of the Advisory Panel on Crown Copyright. [112593]

Mr. Alexander

As I announced on 14 April to the House through a written ministerial statement the role of the Advisory Panel on Crown Copyright isTo advise Ministers on how to create opportunities in the information industry for greater reuse of Government information; To advise Her Majesty's Stationery Office about changes in the information industry, so that the licensing of Crown copyright information is aligned with emerging developments; and To advise on the impact of complaints under the Information Fair Trader Scheme.

I look forward to meeting its Chairman, Professor Richard Susskind, shortly.
