I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 6 October 2008, Hansard, column 293W.

Sir Kevin Tebbit, chairman of Finmeccanica UK, has now been formally selected as chairman of the Defence Advisory Group and will serve for three years. The process to select a chairman of the Security Sector Advisory Group has begun. 13 members have been selected, on the basis of the expertise that they personally bring to speak with authority and experience of security exports, and they will serve for two years as do members of other UKTI advisory groups. Information on individual members of the security group is considered to be personal information, and is withheld for that reason.
