To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what position Maeve Sherlock holds in his Department; and what remuneration she receives; (115390)

(2) who the members are of his Department's Third Sector Advisory Panel; what the date of appointment was of each; and what (a) remuneration and (b) expenses each has claimed.

Members of the independent Third Sector Advisory panel are from the sector representing young volunteers, third sector umbrella bodies and different faith communities. Annex C of the interim report on the Review of the Future Role of the Third Sector in Social and Economic Regeneration published in December 2006 lists the panel members. The panel chaired by Maeve Sherlock (who does not hold any position in the Treasury) has been constituted for 12 months as an ad hoc Government advisory panel. All current members were invited to join the group on a voluntary basis in September 2006. Members are not paid remuneration for attending meetings but all reasonable travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses are paid in line with Government guidance. To date, a total of £305 for travel has been claimed.
